Hi, I signed up to ask this question, but I like the site so I will stay, also I hope this thread isn't too old to reply to.
You mentioned black diamond blasting grit, but https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/pr...ting-abrasives
lists it as
a "Coal slag abrasive", and to keep it dry.
I'm confused, I don't know what coal slag is, but it sounds like it would leach coal or other chemicals into the water.
Any help would be appreciated, as I am starting my first 10 gallon planted soil aquarium on a budget, and really want to get everything right.
I'm willing to wait and save up for a while and get something more expensive if I need to, but I am on a fixed budget, so it will take a while.
Thank you, and sorry again for reviving an old thread, I'm still really new to the whole forum thing.
This is a forum right? Lol, I seriously have no idea what I'm doing.
