starter seed mix, used under gravel?
Hello... I'm new to this exciting world of planted tanks, and I have way to many questions to ask all at once. However, I did hear from someone here in town that they used "starter seed mix" from a local gardening supply store, and have had success with it. It is the basic bag, nitrogen fortified with vermiculite added, and the base is peat. So please anyone that could give me any advice as to use it or not... and what are the potential problems with using peat.
The way it was done, was that they put it on the bottom about half an inch to an inch thick and then covered the whole thing with gravel. 2 weeks of the water being a bit yellowish and then it all cleared up and plants grew like crazy.
So it sounds good, I would just like to hear some other opinions before I do so myself, (in a 2 gallon for starters) and then maybe in the 20 gallon.
Thanks for your help.
