Also what is the best type of soil to buy? I'd rather not purchase anything online, nor do I want to buy the expensive flourite and what not at local pet stores. Trying to keep this substrate fairly cheap for the amount I will come out with.

In the link, the guy just mentioned cheap top soil, whatever that means.

55 Gallon Planted

3 GBR, 2 Bolivian Rams, 1 Juvenile Super Red BN Plecos, 9 Oto Catfish, 9 Bloodfin Tetras
Rotala Indica, Cardamine, Crypt Spiralis, Pygmy Chain Swords, Dwarf Sag, Lutea Crypt, Wendtti Bronze and Red, and Floating Frogbit
