It's official. As of tonight I have entered the realm of the unknown (to me) the dirt. It's pretty exciting... messy

I've been stalking this forum for a few years. This thread finally prompted me to join. I don't currently have a tank. But when I get one it will be dirty and I will be joining this fine group.

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.
