Substrate material recommended for biotope killifish

If you breed medaka in a biotope, you need bottom sand as a substrate material. If you want to reproduce the natural scenery, Arakida soil and Akadama soil are good. The pace of moss growing in the water is slow with Oiso stones and pebbles, so it can be kept relatively clean.
