Re: Bare bottom tanks?

I never have any luck without gravel or sand in my tanks. Considering
how much more are you provide for the bacteria to grow on with substrate
I think of it as a time-saver. There may be more work to clean the 
sand but I don't have to do it as often. I also never seem to get my
plants to survive in bare tanks and I really like to have java moss
thrive in my fry tanks. Just my experiences. I guess if you have a
good filter with a lot of surface you can compensate for the gravel but
my fry tanks tend to be quite small and I can't afford a canister filter
(Eheim Ecco? the smallest?) for each...
