Has anyone ever used

Ista soil?

I'm planning on slowly switching out the floramax in my 55 with a new soil and I came across this at my Lfs

Does it leech ammonia? Buffer good? How long does it buffer? Are the nutrients any good, compared to ada

must....have.....more....moss n shrimp!!!!!!!!!!

I found this on the shrimp soil. So far it's looking like a must have but I'm a bit scared since it is fairly new product

I'm thinking I will haha. It depends on the price of it. And how many liter bags they are for me to switch out my 55. And I can also keep it posted on here, sort of a journal

If anyone can find a distributer for sta plant soil in the us, I will buy it and test out in my shrimp tank, or the ista shrimp soil. I still can find it and I just ordered three Ada Amazonia bags for a substrate swap in my 55
