I have a ten gallon with gravel as my substrate and LED lights (it is getting a lot of indirect sunlight from two nearby windows though). I really like the look of natural plants and moderately planted to highly planted tanks, however I can't seem to find much info on how to keep a moderately planted tank without the "Naturally Planted Tank" method with soil and such (as a noob and college student, gravel is much easier for me to care for/clean).
Is it possible to get a moderately planted tank without using the soil method? (aka. pure gravel). I have an anubus, two other small plants im not quite sure of (but similar to a swordtail?) and a small patch of dwarf hairgrass (which I'd like to expand through the tank).
Biggest wish is to have either some dwarf hairgrass throughout the bottom, or some sort of moss that partially covers the gravel. Any advice?
PS) I can post pics if it would help
