Dogfish: what are your thoughts on capping a dirt tank? I'm being a rebel and not doing it. Would like your opinion considering your poopadirt whatever else fell into the bottom tank substrate lol. So far the top layer is mushy. Tank has had water for about a week now

I will post a picture of the stuff I'm using. I got it from a hydroponic store(love the place) suppose to be the "best organic soil" they carried. I tried making a stone path yesterday and the rock sank through the mushy layer. My curiosity consist of is that mushy layer going to stay mushy(which made trying to plant impossible) or will it compact with time. I plan on using Cali blackworms to stir up the substrate and keep the gasses to a minimum and what ever pest I acquire through plants

That's how I got the microswords in. The rocks on base seem like a good idea will give that a go for sure!

How will emptying then refilling affect my cycling?
