Has anyone used coco fiber as substrate?
I know there are many excellent DIY substrate options out there but I can't get ahold o a lot of the stuff I would need (Peat moss for example I have not found for sale in Portugal). Coco fiber, the type sold as potting compost or reptile substrate is easy to buy.
I have been doing research on using coco fiber in a planted tank and there are rumors that it works well but I've not found much in the way of hard facts or personal experience. I am thinking about using a mixture of garden soil (clay heavy) and coco fiber. Any thoughts? If anyone has any personal experience with coco fiber I would be particularly interested.
