Hey out there,
I'm setting up my 75 gallon to be a planted community tank. Was going to try to use gravel and fert but have decided to go with mts as I am not paying over $100 for eco or aquasoil.
couldn't find any bag soil that wasn't mostly peat and other misc. organics. Even the cheap stuff.
Went to a nursery and bought a load of their bulk topsoil they use for lawn seeding etc. It has no "known" additives.
did the soak and spread out on tarp but it is very clumpy and won't spread easy.
the guy said it would have clay in it. It appears to have a good amount of grey clay already. So, question is should I skip adding the clay part of the process? Or is it normal to have heavy, thick clumpy stuff.
also, have heard rexolin APN is a good micro, and have found it only at a singapore website:
I hope its real and it only comes from a liquid from them. Was thinking of adding to the dirt when I make the goo to put in tank. Anybody know where I can get this in US?
Also, where can I find potash and dolomite?
Please give me any comments on this.
