Complete Substrate

I've not long set up my tank so cant comment on ongoing plant growth. It looks good, does cause a bit of mess when filling tank for the first time. A good layer of gravel over the top helps keep it in place. I bought this (10kg) for my 240l tank, in my opinion it isnt enough to cover the bottom enough for plants as the tub suggests, so I had to do a thicker layer at the back and keep deep rooted plants there.
