@milky: please, don´t try to clean the gravel...neverever... (if it looks like you have to do it: you´ve made something very wrong, I promise...) fish avatar
the layout of your tank has given me a good idea of how to lay my tank out thank you fish avatar
I'm about to put together a 35 gallon planted tank and I was going to use very fine stainless steel screen over UGF plates so I can use fine plant substraight. Is the UGF a bad idea, even if water mainly only flows through the 30% "bare" area of the tank? Will it improve nutrient getting to roots? Lessen anerobic bacterial growth? Thank you.
