I am planning to set up an emerged growth tank today - just a small
one, a 2.5 or 4 gal tank. I will be putting it in the kitchen by a
south-facing window. I am wondering what to use for a substrate. I
was thinking about peat and potting soil with a Jobes or two, maybe
some TMG, and some sand or aquarium gravel on top. How deep should the
substrate be? I am thinking about three inches. How much water should
I keep in the tank? Just enough to cover the substrate? A little
more? I will be planting with Anubias nana and A. nana var. bartari,
and maybe a couple of crypts, a small sword (bought as a melon, but
hasn't grown larger than 2" in 3yrs.).
To keep the humidity up, I will cover it with plastic wrap. Should I
have a few small holes so condensation doesn't build up? Any other
info I should know?
