Hey guys,

quick question, I'm looking at what design i want most in my tank and i'm edging towards a mix of a few

I'm starting off with 'Reciprocity' Aquascape by James Findley. And changing it to have less green and morel coral. I'm also mixing up the reverse side to have the Irish monolith theme. I've seen it on someones signature - but cant remember who.

Anyway this is what i have planned..

I have the coral, what i'm looking for is cheap substrate i can place under everything (garden shop kinda thing) and good substrate i can use with the plants.

I'm also going to plant "Staurogyne repens", anyone know i good cheap place to buy alot of this stuff?

The more substrate i have the less water i have to heat :P

Anyone know any cheaper stuff and i can layer it underneath it?

but ill need about another 60 or 70 liters for under this.

Ring them before you go, I got the last Bags a few weeks ago and it takes them a while to get it in.
