</color>Balin, I presently use flourite, but have had great success with kitty litter 
and plain sand as a substrate. Steve Pushak's website gives all kinds of 
homemade substrates, which should be relatively cheap. The cheapest of 
all is plain river clay topped off with sand. Do a little research and go for it!
