adding a few pots to the tank to eat up some nitrate. not even going to try to plant them. should i just use my substrate in the pot? i have eco-complete african cichlid sand. do i need to add fertilizer?

If you add fertilizer, it kind of defeats the purpose of using the plants to consume nitrates. Vals in general can do well without any supplemental fertilization in my experience. Use whatever substrate you have.

I bought 20 vals for my tanks. I stored them for a few months in dixie cups filled with substrate. They did very well...
