    ok, ive bought some of this stuff for my small arcadia tank. the question is do i use like ADA AS? as in not covering with small grain gravel like the packaging suggests? can i leave it as it is and plant straight in to it?

    thanks

    Is that the sand like stuff? I'm pretty sure that can be used on its own or under gravel, etc. I've used it in all 4 of my tanks - some on its own and some mixed with other stuff.

    it needs capping, otherwise when planting it creates a big mess (hence the why the packaging suggests)

    sort of, where my sand is really shallow, it pulls a bit up when planting, not to bad though :D
