what substrate is better?

Recommended Posts

i want to start up a planted tank for my guppies etc but was unsure what substrate would be best to use. at the moment i have sand but i'm changing tanks so if gravel is better for growing live plants then i'll swap it over. any suggestions??

thank you again! :D:D

Set up with a layer of planting mix on the bottom. I am sure your lfs can recommend something. Maybe try bunnings or similar. Aquatic mix will do the job.

Some then use a layer of newspapers, then a layer of river sand, sand or small gravel.

I like river sand. Isn't as fine as sand, I think its a more natural colour too. And easier for roots to grow through.

Frenchy :D
