Hello all
New to the forums and long time stalker !
Ive finally decided to get back into the hobby after a few years of not having much because of school and work, but now ive just been having that itch to get into it again.
I really only want a low tech 10 gal with a betta and maybe some snails and shrimp.
Ive always wanted to try brightwell substrates but the prices as always made me hesitate.
pretty much just wondering if i could get away with using a 5lb bag to fill up a 10 gal.
thanks!

Your probably going to want at least 2 of those 5lb bags for good coverage, IMO.

I looked on Amazon and the price made no sense.. $30 for 5lbs but $55 for 25lbs..
Not that I know of. Hopefully someone else will.
