3 gallon substrate?
I am looking into what I might need to get my 3 gallon up and going as a planted tank and I was curious on people's opinion as far as substrate goes. I've been browsing all the threads people have created on here and on other sites, but I'm still being indecisive.
Should I go with an eco-complete base or soil with a sand cap? I was also reading that someone did an eco-complete mixed with sand.
I have a bag on eco-complete that was opened ~6 months ago and not used by a friend of mine. Does the dry eco-complete still hold the nutrients as a new bag (which is loaded with their bacteria) does?
