I just wanted to bounce this off someone...what's the best depth for substrate for a planted tank, 2 or 3 inches?  Any opinions on fine versus coarser substrates? (I'm thinking eco-complete)

Whoa. Where did I put all my stuff?

I would think 2 inches for the Eco-complete and 2.5-2 3/4 for layered or filter sand-type grained gravel. Of coarse it also depends on the aquascaping and current movement and plant type and, and, and........
