I'm in the process of getting all the bits and bobs for setting up a new tank. I need to move my 180 litre tank and found a bargain of a new tank in my lfs so am setting this up from scratch and just moving plants and fishes from my old tank over. Thought this was probably easier than moving the one I have currently. Well I am having a little dilema about gravel, my tank is currently set up with sand and i'm thinking of using black gravel this time instead. How much would I need for a 160 ltr tank. And has anyone had dealings with Fluval Satrum and how much dyou think I need? I just asked teh girl in the shop near where I work and she said i'd need about 24kg, is that right. I'm now thinking of just putting it around the plants I want and using normal black gravel for the rest of the tank.
What have other people got in their tanks??
Thanks for all responses
