so im about 6-12 months in this hobby i always envisioned a heavily planted tank, learned its very hard to grow plants in gravel/sand combo i know i can get non rooted plants but i really want specific looking plants and alot of them are root base plants. i want to ideally do aquarium soil/sand combo or i thought of putting soil in certain spots in tank or even putting plants in tiny pots with soil...
so question on changing substrate. i see its wise to move fish to a different tank while changing substrate. so i have a 10g only is it ok to put all my fish in there for however long it takes me to change substrate? i have 8 angelfish most about 1-2 inch big at most, and 2 smaller plecos, 3 kuhli loaches, 1 yoyo loach, 1 clown loach. not sure the best route to go... i have a big 50g black bin i can fill up also. id estimate if im quick i can change substrate in 30 minutes to an hour at most?
