Mineralized top soil?? Low tech tank
Hi, I am not new to planted tanks, but have never tried soil as a substrate. I've read that it can cause algae blooms in the early stages until the organics that are un-useable by plants are broken down. I am going to mineralize it to help with this.
My question is after its done..do you think it would help if i filled the tank and left it w/out any light? before adding plants
