And quick question which I should prob post elsewhere but anyway I understand all purpose sand isn't the best substrate for plants since its all mostly quartz and has no mineral value for the root feeders and I'm looking to plant it more have my grass carpet the bottom and amazon sword in the background any good ideas on how to keep em healthy and growing awesome?

Hi Welcome to AA himdie, Short of redoing substrate it sounds like liquid ferts and fert tabs are going to be your best bet. You can check out Aquariumplants.com they have a substrate Vitalization system that may be help you out as well.
