I'm planning to make an iwagumi layout + crs for my 10g tank. But I just notice that once the HC are fully carpet, substrate will be fully covered.

So now I just realize I bought 13.2lb of Fluval Shrimp Stratum for nothing...?

shoulda bought like eco-complete or alike for $13 instead of $45 lol...

what you guys think? does substrate really matter for full carpet iwagumi?

the shrimp stratum is very light, but will allow a carpet to grow. Eco-complete is a bit large.

You could always mix the stratum with sand, which will help hold in the plants.
