I thought that dog poop shouldn't be composted? Well, that's what my green bin says.
Even after 8 days, the dog poop in my lawn doesn't look anywhere near decomposed.

Any water quality issues?

You are just nuts, but thank you, I'm laughing so hard. I'm definitely subscribed and am so curious to see what happens but I think it will be no different that MG with cow manure, and can't even think of the smell while you were making the substrate, but more power to you if it works.

I could have probably gotten you horse poop if you really needed it lol.

On a tank note very interesting build.

That in exactly why I set this up. That advice is a good on a very general basis. It's based on concerned that dog poop from a dog with intestinal worms could pass that to humans IF that poop isn't cooked in a hot compose pile.

Since I am starting with dogs that are clear of worms that part is a non issue.

Animal poop is a natural part of soil.



Life's to short not to have fun, too bad we need to get grey before we realize that.

Funny thing once I added the aquarium water to the soil (before the cap) it smelled more like the the trash can at Starbuck than a a kennel.

Lol. Trash can at Starbucks.

Subscribed. How could I not be? ; )
Just thinking about your neighbors watching you take pics of dog droppings makes this worthwhile...

Interesting substrate. I take it that this is the same tank the c ferruginea is grown in?

Have you noticed any gas forming in the substrate?

I was under the impression that only herbivores poop was good as fertilizers because they only eat plant matter. Definitely subscribing to this one

Wowwww...that's very interesting substrate, but I guess it's the same concept with my organic soil substrate tank. Lot of nutrients in there for sure.
