All kinds of organic material floats out of my AS during the first use.

|sbarbee54||It is not meant for aquarium use. It is for Bonsai Trees, se we are using it out of the normal scoop of use. So that is why you get these issues with plant matter in it. Now for bonsai trees that would not matter|

is akadama just soil clay? if it just soil clay it isnt hard to fire but adding high CEC is another story.
also making ADA soil or something alike isnt hard. oven oven, bake, bake, fire, fire.

Would the clay you find have the sme buffering/softening proprieties that akadama has? In that case turn on your oven!

I really want to find an American option to this Japanese mud! I'm sure we got something somewhere in such geologically diverse country!

What???!! So I've been lied to this entire time? It might not buffer the water, but it definitely HAS to have some effect on absorbing nutrients and softening the water. Based on experience it has definitely done the latter for me, almost too well. And as for nutrient absorption, I know some terrestrial container gardeners who swear by its CEC. I think this particular user you talked to was a akadama salesman

Although, for bonsai I'm pretty sure it's the same, I believe that it's been used successfully by pro shrimp breeders to keep parameters stable and ideal. It would be interesting to see the experience of an enthusiast that has successfully used turface to breed high grade shrimp. I look forward to it because this thing is not just expensive, now it's kinda rare and it comes all the way from the other side of the globe.

|takadi||What exactly is akadama? It sounds like overpriced and overhyped turface|
