    Planted Tank Substrate

    Anyone recommend substrate for a beginner that wants to move away from using gravel and start planting things other than java fern and anubias on wood and rocks.

    I like Tropica aquarium soil. It will drastically lower the ph by pulling the kh/gh out of the water for the first few months while cycling, but then its great.

    Does anyone have a good recommendation for a bag of potting or top soil to use for a dirted tank with a sand cap that's available at any of the socal hardware stores?
