I want to convert the malawi neighbourhood in to a planted aquascape.
Any suggestions?

Specs:
2 x200L tanks 100 x 40 x 50cm connected with a water bridge.
DIY cannister filter 4000L p/h dual inlets and outlets.
Each tank have a HOB and a powerhead and 3x diy T8 lights planning T5 for planted.

This will be a low to medium tech tank first.

Planning pres co2 for the future... split in to 2 tanks

My biggest concern is the substrate???
Any suggestions for a DIY project that will work for CO2 aswell?
I have: hydroton, lava rock, osmocote and riversand.
Should I use: PFP at the bottom, potting soil, laterite or any other form of soil???

For the substrate, it's probably best to just pick up a few bags of Eco-complete or ActivFlora or whatever brand pet stores near you carry. Substrate is an aspect of the aquarium that you should indulge in because it will be essential to the health of your plants.
