Bubble, bubble organic soil and trouble.
I set up an MG Organic Choice with sand cap tank exactly three weeks ago.
The substrate is 1.5-2" of soil capped with ~1" of sand. I don't know although I suspect that that thickness of soil is leading to my issues. Stating last week I've been manually releasing the built up gasses, and I'm noticing what I believe to be a feint egg smell. I've seen accounts of people getting that smell after months and thinking it was too soon, so my three weeks make me think I've done this all wrong.
Is there any chance of this working out or do I need to go ahead and move the live stock to a temp setup and break down the tank?
I thought all I had to do was keep the substrate under 3", but now I'm wondering if my sand to soil ratio is whats caused my issues.
Thoughts? Experience? Suggestions?
As always, I'll continue looking and reading in the meantime, but I'd love to start an active discussion as well.
