    Hi everyone!

    Hope you're having / had a great holiday.

    What would you suggest I use as a substrate for a planted fishless microtank? I remember someone posting something a while ago about "aquaturf" or something like that, but I can't remember what it was...

    Any help welcomed. :)

    Well, if you're just going to have plants in it, I would pick whatever was best for the plants you intend to keep in it. I really don't know much about plants though, certainly not enough to suggest anything.

    If money isn't an issue, I would go with ADA Aquasoil Amazonia.
