Love the carpet! Is that a sand substrate?
inert sand yes. Same as my grow out iwagumi tank, may post that on here idk
If I had to go back to choosing a substrate, I would choose either sand or ADA aquasoil Amazonia. between the two believe it or not its pretty difficult to choose one or the other. Both with my dosing regime have great results.

Thanks, it looks great! What is the plant? I have a fluval tank also (though not a fluval V) with sand and have been toying with the idea of attempting some kind of carpeting plant...I think this has made my mind up lol
