I bought a 20 pound bag of “Dynadirt” which from my local aquatic garden center to use when I redo my planted tank capped with gravel. It says it’s 75% peat, and 25% sand, it also says that it is PH adjusted with limestone. I’m just wondering if it will mess with my parameters. Has anyone ever tried this?

Never tried it but seems like it might be problematic. Peat lowers the PH so they add limestone to raise it. What happens when this PH buffering is used up? It also has some kind of time release fertilizer. I'd want to know what that is. Even with that they recommend adding fertilizer to it. If you use it let us know how it works out.
