Looking to start two tech and low maintenance tanks. One is a 7 gallon Mini bow and one will be around a 30 gallon.
I like the idea of a Walstad type Natural Planted Tank. See: http://thegab.org/Articles/WalstadTank.html
However, I have seen so many tanks using simple gravel for their substrate these days. I am curious whether at around 2 wpg
I should consider using Eco Complete, the walstad method, or simply gravel?
The gravel sure sounds easiest.
I want to avoid algae issues if I can. Battled hair algae in my Reef Tank for 8 months and that sucked. 8O
