Or, if you're using tap water that's really soft...

Encourage everyone to enlarge that last picture shared by strangewaters. That's how cool this relatively cheap product looks.

Cheaper and you get to see things in-person before you buy.

As a picky person myself, that always makes it better when getting plants or critters.

You will not regret canning them! That's something I have never once regretted. Ever. Other veggies? Sure. Tomatoes? Best decision ever.

If it still looks good, I just supplement with root tabs and dosing. If it's gross mush that I can't manage? I break the tank down and start over.

WOAH! It's been a hot minute since I've posted in this thread.

But I've finally got the urge to get it going again. Excitement. And buckets of substrate, plants, new lights. All the fun things.

May be a waiting game for plant growth but it won't be long with Aquasoil. In a few months you'll probably be tired of trimming those stems.

That's a great blend of substrates. Dirt/clay-based...

$10 for 50lbs is still a huge amount. Even at $20 for 50lbs, it's probably worth it when compared to other dark sands.

plamski probably means when you overfeed. And the extra stuff that plants won't use up.

You won't need a heater. Also won't need to leave lighting on 24/7. A good 8-10 hours will be fine if you're using a light fixture.

Great little tank, TLE. Can't wait to see how it develops. Makes me want to set up yet another tiny tank.

Have you considered adding some sort of background on the exterior of the tank?

For a tank that large, DEFINITELY consider Black Diamond.

It's like $5 for a bag at most. Comes in a few different sizes. Usually available at stores like Tractor Supply.
