    I'm buying a 40litre tank for breeding this weekend, and am wondering what substrate I can get hold of that's fairly cheap?
    Whatever substrate will get topped with black gravel. I'm just after something that will help the plants, rather than banging them straight into gravel.

    Tropica stuff sounds good, but it's almost £20 delivered!

    Zooplus - what a joke. They don't accept Visa debit cards.
