    A breeding pair of GT's may work. However, your problem will be getting a pair. If you get a male and female and they don't like each other one would probably kill the other. Also, a male GT may grow...

    Substrate like Eco-complete and Fluorite are inexhaustible for the timescale of the home aquarium keeper. At 2 years old all it needs is maybe a stirring and a good gravel vac.
