    Hello, I'll be having a planted tank and was wondering how many centimetres of substrate is good for a planted tank and... this obviously has to be taken off of the tanks height to properly calculate the aquariums litre capacity?

    I think most people do not subtract substrate when calculating capacity (at least I know I do not).

    I have never taken any amount off for substrate. But really if you want to, that all depends. Everyone substrate is different. Depth, Gravel/particulate size. Too many variables for almost anyone to really figure out which is why most people don't worry about taking it off
