ugh stopped by home depot and just decided it would be more cost effective and probably safer to just buy cheap top soil. Im currently in the process of mineralizing it right now and want to make sure everything else I as using is ok. What I am most concerned about is the clay. From what I read I dont want to be using any synthetic clay and so does anyone know of any exact brands/names of clay that I can just order online? Or is the one Im buying going to be fine?
Here the list of other ingredients i will be using.
Estes Dolomite from
Muriate of Potash from

And Cmaco No.67 Clay from

|lamiskool||good to know thanks, with winter and and the rain i thnk this might just be easier...i guess ill just go fishless for a while and do lots of water changes/let the ammonia deplete for a while and stay away from shultz if i can|

|Jeffww||Yes probably it's all the same basically. I heard that shultz pond soil leaches a lot of ammonia though.|

Hey I'm about to start a few planted tanks and was wondering instead of going through the process of making mineralized top soil, could I just use pond soil (ones that you buy in bags) insead of the MTS and would it work just as well?
