Why not buy the cheapest potting soil you can get.

separate by grades, keep the smallest particles.

Mineralize with clay and other additives? MTS Soil.

I used miracle grow potting soil organic on 2 10 gallon tanks and it worked wonderfully and plants grew super fast

You don't want the PLANT FOOD. Its just compost and probably has manure in it. Just use a cheap bag of topsoil. It shouldn't have anything in it but black dirt.
