  1. Substrate
    I am setting up a 53 gallon tank and I would like to realize my first aquascaping tank where plants have the leading role. Now I have to deal with the problem of the substrate. Because it is my first aquascaping tank (not the first at all) I was looking for something that could match both plants...
  2. Substrate
    So I'm going to try this as my final mix for substrate for a natural planted tank. 1" Organic Potting Mix + 1/2" Fluorite Black (mixed together) 1/2" Blasting Media (20/40) cap. This will be my 2" combined substrate in a 33-Long (48x12x13h) low tech and low-med light. I have looked all over...

    Are the Fluorite type substrates (such as Floramax) too large for Marsilea or DHG root systems? What substrates have you had luck with (and what have you not)? I have about a third a bag of the stuff left, but I'm filing a 29gal so I dont mind changing substrate since I'll need more anyways...

I prefer the look of the Fluorite but I've heard that there are some issues with water cloudiness if...
  6. Substrate
    I have Profile in my tanks. It's mostly getting onto 10 years old now. Does it ever need to be replaced? [edit] Ugh, "Fluorite." Lesson: proofread your titles.
  7. Substrate
    Howdy. Okay, so, newb here. Lemme start with that I have a 20 gallon tank that's been running for about three years now. I started with gravel and changed to sand about a year in or so and that's what's still in there now, a white sand. I don't mind the sand, except that it kills my filters...
  8. Substrate
    I'm planning on setting up a 29 gallon planted tank. I have about 25 lbs. of a clay-like substrate. Looks similar to fluorite but is gray. I bought it in bulk from a LFS, said it was good for planted. I recently stumbled upon some ADA Amazonia substrate. I'd like to use the ADA aw well. My...
