Hydroton on the bottom
#1
I was doing my research and saw that someone said that instead of having a drainage layer i could just put 3-4 inches of Hydroton on the bottom and cover with live moss or Magnolia
is this true?

Using hydrotron will be your drainage layer. I have a thread here where I planted my plants right in the sphagnum moss and hydroton.
You can look up the thread pretty easily if your interested in seeing it.

Yes, you can grow some plants right in the hydroton. Pothos works for one. I did part of my tank like that and added a "soil" layer on top on the other side of my tank. I added the soil so that springtails and tropical woodlice would have a place to live. Fran
