Miracle Mud?


Has anyone ever tried Ecosystems Miracle Mud in a fresh water tank?
I have used it in my reef tank and have no complaints. I wish I could be more specific on the pros, but donít see any real drawbacks with the product.
Thanks, Aaron

Might want to place some in a glass of water and take some PH measurements. It is advertised as a saltwater product, used in refugiums, so I would worry about it buffering your PH. Just a though.

I've never used it so I can't comment on the usefulness of it. I do know they have both salt and freshwater versions though.

Ok. I think I'm going to use it in my next tank. Don't know until you try, right?

Before you use Ecosystems Miracle Mud, see this link (offsite) http://www.reefs.org/library/article/mm_analysis.html . I don't think it's anything all that special.

Also, if you are planning to purchase it, Miracle Mud is extremely expensive. It's even more expensive that ADA Aquasoil. If you already have the Miracle Mud, you could give it a try, but if your planning to purchase it, I'd go with something proven.

Forgive me for not saying this earlier. I plan on using it in my refugium. The tank was a 65 gallon reef system. I'm using dirt for the substrate.
