Magic Dirt; anyone use it?

100% Sustainable Premium Organic Potting Soil - Magic Dirt

It dosn't have perlite in it, and it is all organic.

I was wondering if anyone has used it or thinks it would be okay? It also dosn't have peat moss in it.

One thing about any of these "organic potting soils' is to look up the ingredient list, if it lists any decomposed or rotted cow or chicken manure, or any other barnyard waste, avoid it like the plague.

There is one type of 'soil' that I specifically trust to not make a mess under the gravel cap my freshly started planted tank and that would be some sort of very clean, clayish subsoil found underneath topsoil from a garden or lawn you know that isn't treated with fertilizers or weed killers. And give it a few weeks long de-mineralization period.
