sairving Posted March 28, 2022 Share Posted March 28, 2022 (edited) Hey everyone! Back in Mid February my 10 gallon tank cracked during a water change. The previous tank had aquasoil capped with pool filter sand. Currently, there's only pool filter sand in the tank (its all I had at the time). Root tabs have been added twice. I've lost most of the crypts and the melon sword is sort of hanging on. Due to my hard water, I've learned plants do better with a nutrient rich substrate. My plan is to order some more Brightwell FlorinVolcanit substrate (it does not leech ammonia). Fluval Stratum should work too. Would it be easier to remove the sand in sections, add the aqausoil, and recap with pool filter sand or just remove everything at once? I'm trying to figure out the least stressful way for my fish. I'm also debating about a fine gravel over the soil versus sand. Edited March 28, 2022 by sairving Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
