RE: [AGA Member] Aquarium Planning

With Flourite, Fourite Red, Onyx Sand, or EcoComplete, you
don't have to mix in anything. You don't need to combine
this different products either -- the differences in grain
size will cause them to tend to stratify anyway.

Shop areound on-line. You can often find them cheaper from
an on-line suppler, even after including shipping costs.

Some peat on the glass under the substrate isn't a bad idea
in a new tank. Helps provide some organics for the roots
until the substrate is well developed with mulm.
