FWIW the substrate i use is 1" peat moss, 1" play sand, 1" pro choice select. Each layer filled with water but nothing floating, leveled and the tank cleaned then then next layer added.
And plants added then the tank filled.
maintain Fw and marine system with a strong emphasis on balanced, stabilized system that as much as possible are self substaning.
have maintained FW systems for up to 9 years with descendants from original fish and marine aquariums for up to 8 years.
With no water changes, untreated tap water, inexpensive lighting by first starting the tank with live plants (FW) or macro algae( marine)
