Does anyone know what depth level I should make a sand bed in a 10 gallon tank? I currently have 2 - 2 1/2 inches in the bottom and it seems to be a little much. I'm planting it too, so I can't have the sand too shallow. I'm thinking about 1 - 1 1/2 inches, should that work?

some plants need deeper substrate, but you'll be fine with 1.5 inches or so. you want it as thin as possible so you don't get gas pockets.
