Hello all,

For the past two months, I have been researching and studying aquatic plants and aquascaping. I spent lots of time reading Amano books and surfing the internet, looking at hundreds of plants and planted tanks from all over the world. Now, I think its time for me to create my own planted tank.

And over the two months, I bought a couple of things thats required prior to setting up a tank...

-26 gal. bow front
-24" USA current lighting (2x65watts)
-1 bag caribsea eco-complete substrate
-1 bag flourite brown and 1 bag flourite red
-1 hagen nutrafin CO2 setup (for now)
-1 flourish fert.
(big thanks to Stacey @ staceyspets for all of this :D )

Now, I'm ready to start but I have a question about my substrates. Can I mix all 3 together or should I put the Eco-complete on the bottom then put the flourite red/brown on top?

and how many inches of substrate should I put?

Oh okay, the flourite will be on the bottom with the eco-complete on top. So when I plant my plants, the roots will be in the flourite layer, giving it oxygen right?
