recently decided to go for my first planted tank... I originally had seachem fluorite with a layer of pool filter sand on top... now one thing lead to another and its all mixed up now. super, have more kids they said.
so... from what I have searched out on the internet, its not really that big of a problem? can anyone confirm this?
I dont mind having to remove it all and restart, but I also thought maybe if I also mixed in some fluval bio stratum it would probably work just fine?
any advice would be appreciated, I have no problem restarting that tank from the ground up. it is currently only the substrate, some lava rocks, and a piece of drift wood. its got a filter and heater going, but no plants, no fish.
