You may want to consider a stubstrate like eco complete for a heavily planted tank. It's more suited for plants, and they will probably grow better in it than in plain gravel. Have you read this article before? It also provides some great helpful tips:cherryrose said:I am using the regular aquarium gravel.
Yup new there was one you don't rinse, fluorite you do right?Gunnie said:You will have a tough time finding it online at a reasonable price because shipping will be expensive. Sometimes you can get a special deal on the shipping though. If they don't have it, ask them at PetSmart and/or Petco if they will special order it for you. Also see if you have a local pet store that's not a chain. They might be more willing to place a special order.
You don't rinse Eco Complete. It's supposed to have bacteria in it to help accelerate your cycle, and also contains other nutrients beneficial to your plants
