That's a lot of extremely helpful information. Avoid plant-rich substrate is the opposite of what I would have guessed. So something like sand or small gravel instead. I like how the red flourite looks--perhaps combine that WITH sand?
Thanks. So the water parameters are more steady as water volume increases. That makes sense. With relation to live plants, does the depth difference between a 55g, 75g, or 90g have a noticeable impact on plant growth?
I am wanting to get into the hobby as I have been fascinated for years but haven't had the opportunity to set up a tank of my own until now.
