Pookieq Posted January 11 Share Posted January 11 Hey y’all, So I finally set my 75 gallon up. However, I only did so after working three nights in a row when I had expected at least a day off, so I wasn’t super clear in my thinking. Having heard that grape leaves are high iron and therefore beneficial to crypts in particular I decided to add a layer of them to my substrate. I did not have a clear direction in how I wanted to plant the tank, so I just spread them across the entire bottom. My chief question is whether anyone else out there has any experience using grape leaves, not dried but from a grocery store, in their substrate? And second, what does everyone think will happen? I had a moment when I was about half finished planting, that maybe it wasn’t wise to have a layer of decaying plant matter sitting between my aqua soil in media bags and my upper gravel layer. Should I just rip them out now or ride it out and find out what happens? Thanks! 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
