Hi everyone,
I'm thinking about changing the gravel to something smaller in my planted (low tech) show tank when I am forced to move it in order to have new carpet installed later this summer. i don't want sand or the learning curve that comes with it. It took a lot of trial and error to be successful for the long term with maintaining plants/water/fish/feeding/maintenance. Some of my existing gravel is really larger pebble size that I hand collected years ago along the North Carolina beach. I've fine tuned what grows successfully in this tank and would like some smaller gravel for the plant roots. I came across what is called Carib Sea Peace River Natural Gravel on the website. Carib Sea says it is natural gravel 1/16 to 1/8 inch diameter. Describing it as an inert, natural substrate (unusual coarse sand size with rounded grains), recommended for freshwater planted aquariums at a grain size of 1.0 to 2.0 mm. I think I would like this, just hoping it doesn't pack like sand. Anybody have any experience with this gravel?
