Question on adding Aqua Soil to Established Tank?
I've ordered a few 9 liter bags to replace some plain gravel (top dressing above some Eco) in one of my tanks. I am thinking of doing this in stages...maybe five to 10 lbs a week over a month or more. This is to eliminate any super fast pH drop as I already run it pretty low to give me some time to monitor it and make adjustments. Any thoughts on this plan? Any problems with putting AS into water, instead of a dry tank bottom? The AS will probably be ~ 40lbs of substrate in the front third of a 90 gallon tank, eventually. Maybe upto 60 lbs if I need more...
