Replacing substrate in established tank

Recommended Posts

So basically I currently have a 4x2x1.5.

Livestock is a bit all over the place at the moment, waiting for some stock to be picked up. But anyway its going to be a planted Discus tank, some juvi discus already calling the tank home.

Plants are crypts and val with anubis on driftwood.

The current substrate is gravel, from bunnings originally i think. I run moderate light and pressurised CO2.

So to give my plants a boost and to try and buffer my ph down, it keeps creeping up which the discus obviously don't appreciate. I have purchased some ADA amazonia from one of the sponsors and would like any ideas/experience you guys have with doing a full substrate swap and also with preparing ADA soil to prevent ammonia spikes
