Interesting thanks for taking the time to explain. I am using a soil bed (Natures Choice Organic) topped with sand. So I suspect that it is Highish CEC depending on it's lifespan. Switching over from the Reef keeping hobby which is more science than hobby I am starting to learn planted FW tank is almost the same <lol>

Oh it can be! Same boat here, I went from freshwater to marine, to reef to planted. The good thing is that outside of your protein skimmer and bags of salt, lots of your reef equipment can still be utilized.

Nothing good happens fast in an ecosystem.

<lol> ditto here, I was going to give it all up and then figured why not try a 10 gallon nano planted. Already planning for a 90 gallon. It's addictive. Yes, most of the equipment can be recycled.
