Capping Soil
« on: June 07, 2020, 01:58:42 pm »
I have a 50g tank that is lightly planted and only has tiger barbs, the plants are in Tropica soil and the fish have learnt to dig or pull up the plants and eat the new root growth, can I cap the soil with gravel to stop them ?

    Yes. It’s as straightforward as it sounds. And/or feed the Barbs more...
