Beginner’s Guide to Aquarium Substrates

Aquarium substrates are the materials that cover the bottom of an aquarium, creating a surface that closely mimics the natural habitats of your aquatic pets. They go beyond just being an aesthetic addition; these substrates play a crucial role in the overall health of your tank. They provide a habitat for beneficial bacteria that aid in the breakdown of waste, a source of nutrition for plants, and a natural environment for fish and invertebrates.
