to MTS or not to MTS
ok guys, hoping to get your opinions on this one. at the moment i have a 65g tank, med to densely planted tank. mostly swords, crypts, red ludwiga and some stems. as a substrate i am using richgro aquatic potting mix. this is made from fossilised sea sponges so it has a huge CEC potential, added root tabs, capped with black beauty. i have to move house again so i thought it might be time try mineralised top soil.
what i was thinking of was using the MTS as a bace layer, cover that with the richgro, then cap with the black beauty. i am using pressurised CO2 and have a DIY led fixture over the tank and 2 X 400gallon/ph canister filters
the plants are growing really well at the moment so the question is-
is this a bit of overkill or is this going to help me in the long run, save me having to dose weekly with ferts, make the tank flourish even more?
