In the meantime, I can pass along a little information I learned when I had a dirt tank some years ago. You can build your own soil very cheaply if you are worried about contamination from garden soil. Of course, bags of sand and organic material are easy to find at any home improvement store. But you can also get bags of clay. Ceramic supply stores carry it. It's a dry powder not unlike cement. I guess it's easier to ship it that way than it is to ship it as big chunks of moist clay. Look for red clay. The red color is produced by iron. Plants like iron. That is assuming the red color is natural and not a dye. A bag of the clay, a bag of sand, and a bag of organic material add up to real dirt that is as sterile as can be. Plus you can mix them in any proportions you want.

I'm anxious to get a new tank. And I look forward to talking dirty with y'all.
WELCOME TO THE FORUM!!!! Honored to recieve you're first post in this thread!

link to my journal: http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/ta...-long-2-a.html

this is my first REAL planted tank and first dirt tank as well. im using miracle grow organic soil mix as my base, fine play sand as my stacker to hold it down.

tank is pretty bare right now, have 4 plants in it (foxgrove? and some other stuff ill take pix of tomorrow) and 6 yellow labs that seem to really dig the foxgrove (not sure if thats what its called).

I have heard of some really bad situations with using soils as a substrate. I used around four inches of it to make my tank. I know most of the time it's not bad, but mine releases gas bubbles all the time... I would imagine that as long as the gas is released, I'm doing pretty good, right? I found out about putting too much at the bottom. I'm not going back though. It's just too awesome. My next NPT is going to be MUCH better planned.

True! True! This is normal for a new tank. Gas is harmless unless it has an egg odor, which takes a long time to occur.

Calling all Fraternity of Dirt members. Please help. A few months ago i got an Indian Red
Sword which died, I had a feeling that something is wrong so pulled out the plant and the roots had turned black and was smelling like swerage.

A week back i bought A Red Flame sword which too the roots are turning black and smelling too any suggestions.

I have Black Florite as substrate and Organic potting soil underneath that. Cant tell much about water perimeter cause i dont know. I do use Seachem tabs. I used one under this pertcular plant.
