OK so i searched and now am more confused. I have a 55 with a 3 inch layer of flourite and black gravel. My dad is setting up a 75 for plants. He has nothing so which substrate would you use. Trying to not go super $$$ but want the tank to look nice. Soil Master select? Sand with other soil mixed in? Flourite? Whats the benefits of each?

For anyone else wondering I found this thread:

think i might try the flourite/SMS mix

Well aquasoil is best but it can get pricey so I would do the sms. Aquasoil can be bought at
Go Aquasoil. It's a one time investment.

If you do things right, you won't be disappointed.
