clay + mineralized compost/manure/topsoil (Ca/Mg/Fe/potash/boron) + aquasoil topped with sand

Works great since there's aquasoil for anything with really shallow roots, like most foregrounds. And there's some good minerals available for plants that would ordinarily require root tabs. The only downside would be that mine always leeches for over a month. Also pulling plants up causes issues.
