I'm planning to set up a sorority now that I got all settled in my new place.
I've always wanted to use sand as my substrate and wanted to get it now that I'm setting up a new tank.
BUT I also want plants, so...
Has anyone had any luck with plants in sand? I know it's not ideal because the same is too compact but I would like to hear if there are any success stories and how you do it.
All the other substrates ideal for plants that aren't gravel I've seen are black or too dark for my liking.
