 Hello  all,
 I  m  going  for  a  new  planted  tank  (no  fancy  expensive  plants  though  unless  someone  is  planning  to  spare  some   Very Happy   jk)
 
 Here  is  what  I  am  planning  for  the  substrate
 Aquaclay  (bottom  layer)  -  1  inch
 ADA  Amazonia  (middle  layer)  -  2  inch
 River  sand  -  1  inch
 
 I  m  planning  to  use  HC  as  well,  should  I  keep  some  Amazonia  as  a  top  layer  for  them  or  can  I  use  the  above  substrate  combination  throughout  ?
 
 Also,  I  m  using  twin  white  T8  25w  tubelight  that  came  along  with  my  Boyu  aquarium,  I  m  assuming  that  this  will  not  suffice  for  a  2ft  high  tank  ?
 
 Any  thoughts
 
 Cheers
 Kiran

 You  may  have  to  add  additional  light  because  of  Height.
 
 Why  do  you  need  Sand,  is  it  becuse  of  cost  or  you  want  the  sand  look?

 @deepak  :  it  is  a  primarily  the  cost.  
 If  I  want  to  give  an  irregular  terrain  look  (varying  height),  can  I  use  gravel  at  the  bottom  with  amozonia  and  river  sand  above  ?
