I would like to buy some Vallisneria Spiralis to start off with but I read somewhere that it cannot be planted into coral sand substrate - is this true? I also read that it doesnt matter what you put this plant into so now I am a bit confused.
Your help is appreciated,
Coral sand should be fine, I'm guessing your PH is high though, Won't really make a difference, Please could you post lighting, CO2 and fertilization regimes?
