Soil For potting aquatic plants

Hi I am trying to figure out how to keep my rooted plants alive My tanks are low light and low tech I have seen some tanks with plants in pots verses in the gravel. What soil do I need to acomplish this (cheap) I have heard of something called aqua soil gotten from Home depot or nurserys. I want to be able to move my plants around to get at fry and parents without destroying the tank.

Schultz Aquatic Soil is what you're talking about. It tends to be a seasonal product, so you might have a hard time locating any before spring.

You could use any commercial aquarium plant substrate, such as Eco Complete, Flourite, etc. Or go with a cheaper substitute such as Soil Master Select/Pro's Choice or Turface.

Try www.Lesco.com or a local John Deere store. Some people have found it at WalMart/Lowes, but mine don't carry those products.
