I got my grubby little hands on five bags of turface... not that I need that much, but you never know (and you can't beat free). I am trying to set up an aquarium, ten gallon, utilizing this substrate. I would like to cap it with something more attractive (the reddish color I find less than pleasant). What are your suggestions, what else should I add, do I need a peat layer?
Please point me in the right direction

I recommend you add some peat and mulm from an established tank, then cap it with turface.
