OK, so I was just getting some perlite and pots and my local Bachman's in order to start my plumerias (tropical plants is another one of my "not so 9th grade" hobbies I am into), and I also got out my potting soil. I was looking on the back at the different types of potting soil there was. It was Schultz brand, so it had all the different kinds of planting media made by Schultz. I was looking and saw "Aquatic plant soil" under the list of different planting media!
Has anyone every used a brand like this for aquatic plants? I have a feeling it might be more of a pond thing, but it may very well be useable in an aquarium! I have a 10 gallon that only has 1 fish in it, so I could move that to my 55 and restart that tank (10 gallon) by getting some of this "aquatic plant soil" and trying it out! I could top it off with a 1:1 flourite/gravel mix and see how the plants do... Any info on this?
Tank in transition! 55 gallons, hard water.
