Cow Manure / dirt
I am currently running a couple of nano dirt tanks, against most recommandations i have used dirt that contains 30% cow manure. There is no sign of algae beacuse of high nutrients in these tanks. One of the tanks have been running for a couple of months now and looking good.
I see the Miracle Grow potting soil that many aquarists use is containing chicken manure. I have heard that chicken manure is the strongest natural fertilizer there is, mutch more aggressive than cow manure. And cow manure is a slow releasing fertilizer. Could it be so that dirt with cow manure is not so bad to use or do you think i am up for a algae suprise in the future?
This is the label text on the dirt bag i have used:
