When I got my first bag of aquasoil, I got so excited. I never knew I could be so happy for a bag of dirt to arrive at my house via mail.

The only thing about Aquasoil is that it turns into mud in time and can be a pain and get everywhere while moving plants. Only reason why I have stuck with Eco-complete. The plants do and will grow alot faster and lusher with Aquasoil, plants really love it. Thats awesome you got a 120 Zach, Im jealous

Yeah, I don't plan to move stuff around much, so hopefully it will bed fine!

Thanks Knuggs, I can't wait to get it going.

Dang boy use gonna be able to farm the finest of plants with that der fancy dirt

You have a idea of how deep of substrate you are goin to get with that? When do you plan on starting to plant? Id already be ripping into the bags. Is that your Co2 reactor in the right corner? Cant wait to see the growth of this tank. Hope your putting some Persicaria kawagoeanum, would be cool to see a big bush of it. Especially since it can get tall.

Gonna be pretty hard to plant plants with that soil in the bags. Go get the scissors and let's get going!!

Looks like a great project. Will keep my eyes on this one.

Thanks, everyone! I sure wish I could cut those bags open now. However I still need to get slate for the driftwood I have stashed at work. I have a friend that is supposed to bring some in for me.

Thanks, Knuggs. As soon as the driftwood is in I'm going to order a crap ton of plants of the swap, and grab some from work. I want to heavily plant this from the get go if I can get enough stems. Yup, that's my reactor. I should probably get a drop checker... I never used one on my other tank because I had a sump so I asn't worried about gassing the fish. I hadn't really thought about it, but I might.
