Do you happen to live near a PetCo? They do $1 per gallon sales on up to 75 gallons I believe.

ADA Amazonia is probably the most nutrient-dense aquasoil on the market. I use it in my high tech nano to carpet HC. That said, it does leech ammonia for a couple of weeks with the intention of helping you cycle a tank without fish in it. A 9 liter bag is about $70 on Amazon. As far as changing water parameters it will make your water softer and more acidic.

Fluval Stratum is less nutrient dense and doesn't buffer your water quite so heavily, but is still a good plant substrate. It does not leech heavy amounts of ammonia like ADA Amazonia and price-per-pound is easier on the wallet, but it's a case of quality vs. quantity.

BTW INeedHelpLol, to get an adequate substrate depth of 2 inches in that tank, you'll need about 21 liters of aquasoil.

The $1.00 per gallon is only for smaller sizes, but their usual price for that tank is $100.00, and it's half price when they run the $1.00 per gallon sale (that's how I got mine).
