    This is my first post on this website i hope your all ok. I have pea gravel in my tank and it is quite corse. I am soon to start planting in my fully established community fish tank. I have around 100 fish of various breads shapes and sizes. Not too big though lol. I am soon to set up a Diy co2 system and shortly after to plant up my tank. I am worried about the gravel. It might be a little corse to have a sucessfull planted tank. Also my lighting is X4 T8 30W lights 60cm to substate ish. Any advice on any of these issues including ferts etc would be great.

    Thank you.

    Pea gravel should be OK. How big are the stones? You could consider Tropica capsules in the gravel to give things a boost :)
