so ive decided to get like 4 puffers for my 20 long.

now the question is the substrate and which plants to choose because i want this tank to be flourshing with plants.

I have black gravel that i was thinking of using with some flourite.....but then i wanted to go with sand..

Ive heard the pros and cons of using sand but i want your opinions and personaly experiences

What plants did wel in a sand substrate and which ones did bad?

I just need some advice on picking a substrate

thanks guys

From what I've seen, most plants will do ok in sand so long as the sand is stirred up and isn't allowed to get compacted and choke off the roots. I personally like gravel because I don't see how nutrients are supposed to go down through the sand to the roots, but that's just me
