Ok so I finished all the piping for the sump and we are leak free and water added and pumps are going. Time for substrate, just wanted to see what people liked most.
FYI, Petco has a %20 sale right now on all their items and eco-complete is $14. and change. With free shipping on $50 or more. I'm going to need I take it 10 bags or so.
With that said, I have a few fish tanks with flourite right now in them and I wanted something different for this display tank. It's going to be planted and just have discus and juliee cory with rummy nose. It's 155 gallon custom.
Basically, I want to put either Flourite Black, Flourite Black Sand, or Eco-complete. I'm not worried about ph rising or cleaning mud out of substrate.
My main concerns are gas pockets, root holding correctly, plants that shoot out runners, foreground plant root holding.
I got till tomorrow for that sale at petco.
