I have a 20L with 18lbs of Stratum and a 10 gallon tank with 5L (about 10lbs) of Landen soil. The 20 has been running for a few months, but I just started the Landen tank yesterday. It's a bit of an experiment for myself to see which I prefer.
It's early in the process, but I am definitely experiencing an ammonia spike right now in the Landen tank. I did not have such a spike with Stratum.
With Stratum, I had a great big dust storm when I flooded it. With Landen, there has been literally zero dust in the water. I wonder if this difference is solely due to packaging: Landen is vacuum packed, and Stratum is packed like a bag of potato chips.
I will try post more about my experience as the tank matures.
