    Default Substrate help

    I need a substrate that is like soil but can have plants grown in it. Also should i put moss on top of it so my frogs don't get dirt in the water?

    Atlanta botanical gardens. It's a copy of their proprietary mix.

    I don't know the exact recipe off the too of my head, but a quickie google search should give you the exact recipe.

    How would you get water out of a drainage system if it gets full?

    Install either a small lcv pip up the back wall that makes it down into the drainage layer and insert a small tube into to syphon out the excess water. Or skip the PVC and permanently install a tup that you use to syphon the water out with.

    Bill has a post around here somewhere about creating a permanent syphon using a valve on the end out of the tank to close of the water flow and maintain the suction.
