That is similar to what happened when I came up with the bright idea to just dump water into the MGOCPS and let the stuff float up so I can remove it. I did get the floaters but two weeks later it looked like a Starbucks exploded in my tank. Back to sifting..

Not wanting to be an arss and keeping only a short list for membership:

Welcoming any dirty tankers to join.
The use of dirt (any dirt) as the primary media under a containing cap material. That's the only requirement for membership.
CO2 or non, high tech / low tech doesn't matter. Got dirt? Got a journal about a tank with dirt? Good to go

Join by adding your name to the list and a link to your thread easy peezy.

banter in our threads and listing membership and links here in this thread is my hope and idea with this.

kamikazi - the tank is clearing up. I uprooted an enormous sword plant, didn't turn off the filters, didn't do it slowly, and didn't trim most of the roots like some other members #1 & #2 tried to tell me. Add that with approximately 1/3 clay to mineralized dirt ratio and viola! Muddy waters. Now everything is nicely covered in 'soot' and after 24 hours and many water changes, I am thinking "I should have listened." Here it stands at the moment.

For Mike (just because I still know how to copy and paste even if I do screw up quotes, lol):
