 I  am  looking  at  some  suggestions  for  what  to  use  to  create  slopes  in  the  substrate.
 I'll  be  using  ADA  AS  as  substrate,  but  don't  have  enough  of  it  to  create  steep  slopes.
 
 Was  looking  at  thermocol,  but  keep  reading  that  it  causes  problems  because  of  it's  buoyancy.
 Can  I  use  tiles  or  small  slabs  of  granite  or  something  similar?
 Are  there  any  other  light  weight  and  inert  options  available?

 Hi,
    Regular  bathing  scrubs  like  these..
 
 
 
 use  them  directly  or  make  sand  bags  using  them..  you  will  have  to  un-roll  them  and  fill  with  sand..

 hmmm  very  interesting.
 
 we  sometimes  think  too  much.  Why  dont  you  use  drift  wood  or  block  of  hard  wood?

 Hi  
 
 Earlier  I  had  used  used  socks  filled  with  sand/substrate  to  create  slopes.  Worked  well.

 You  can  use  small  pieces  of  construction  bricks,  which  are  comparatively  cheaper  and  lighter.

 if  u  are  gonna  cover  it  with  some  sand  or  anything  else  u  can  also  use  hard  fiber  plates  which  we  usually  use  as  base  when  we  cut  veggies.
