I will shortly be setting up a new 260 litre aquarium, and can't decide what substrate to use. To be honest i've only ever used normal gravel, but i want to promote the plant growth in as many ways as possible so thought about using possibly Tetraplant Complete substrate, and adding 1-3mm sized gravel on top of it, or possibly using Dennerle DeponitMix Professional Substrate. Does anyone know anything about this product. I don't think you need anything on top of this one, but i'm not sure. Any help will be gratefully received. :D

So do you need top have gravel or sand on top of the Deponitmix then?

I'm a bit of a newbie where substrates are concerned, having only ever used gravel, but is'nt ADA Aquasoil rather expensive?

No no, the aquasoil is a complete substrate in itself. You do need any gravel or sand on top of it.

Yes, the plants where healthy but the smell wasn't. :rolleyes:

You cap the Deponit mix with gravel or sand :)

FYI - if you do go down the Dennerle route don't get a heater cable, they are unnecessary, but the Dennerle system says they are. Save the money and spend it on something else.
