What kind of substrate are you using? I'm using regular old play sand..

Also, there are many different types of root tabs.. Some look like stuff jammed in a pill capsule.. I try to stay away from these as the capsule never fully dissolves from what I've been told.. The seachem flourish tabs will full dissolve not leaving junk in your substrate..

I'm not sure if my substrate is suitable for planting. I have medium-sized pebbles(?). Do I need to get a different kind of substrate?

Nahhh. you can use about anything. Especially if you add root tabs. The specialized substrate becomes more important when you get into finer, delicate plants that create ground cover, etc.

What do you mean by specialized substrate? So, the ones that I have now is not good for a dwarf hairgrass?
