Default Re: What is the best substrate for a planted newt aquarium?

For years I worried about that....and eventually went to a bare bottom tank. Then one day I realized....newts don't live on glass bottom ponds, lakes, or streams. And I've seen newts crawling all over all sorts of pebbles, rocks, sand, dirt etc in the wild and have lived millions of years fine with our intervention. Went to my naturalistic set up and haven't looked back. Been like that for 5-6 years now without issue.
