Hey all, I've decided too 'build' a planted tank for all my females, but I need to know what I'll need for substrates. I've been trying to find info but the internet isnt turning up much for helpfulness. I wanna try sand and dirt on the bottom instead of gravel. I understand that you gotta put the sand on top of the dirt to keep it down, but i was wondering what type of dirt to use thats safe for the fishies?? Also, what kind of sand to use. I know I used to use sand in my bearded dragons tank but I didnt know if it was the same stuff as they used in tanks. Anyone tried play sand?
I know a bit about plants so thats fine, I just need to know substrate stuff LOL
Thanks for any info.
PS: this is what im hoping to do, kinda.
