Substrate for Sword plant
I have a sword plant in a tank with my betta and I keep having to replace it because it gets black and brown spotted and slimy. What is a good (preferably black in color) substrate for this plant?
Along with the substrate, and even more importantly, what is the light over this tank? And do you add any fertilizer (liqwuid or substrate)? Swords are heavy feeders, but without sufficient adequate light an enriched substrate will not achieve much. Give us the details of the light (type, watts, lighting duration each day) and we can help more.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
