Hi guys, I've decided against dirting my tank(s) going to wait till I get a bigger tank then dirt that and plant the hell out of it!
I still want some live plants in my tanks though, one is a sand substrate, the other is gravel, will I need to add anything to help the plants root and grow?
the sand is approx 1inch deep at the front, going up to 2inchs at the back, I will only be planting at the back of this tank
the gravel is 1inch level to the back, I have more gravel I can add though if needed.
Thanks in advance for any advice, and I know dirt would be the best thing, but I haven't got anywhere for my fish to go, unless a friend has a spare tank I can borrow from him for a little while
i saw a video on youtube of a guy making his own root tabs with gelatine cases for pills and miracle grow fertiliser of some sor
I have a planted tank without dirt to and i use fertilizer root tabs and all my plants grow great
I have an all gravel tank with about 3 to 4 inches throughout with a pile of plants that make it look like a forest in there. I have no idea why anyone would want to put dirt in a tank, I try to keep mine, a 90 gallon, clean.
