ok so i am new to plant tanks. and right now im using play sand from home depot. but would like to change it. im really into DIY stuff i can do to my tank thus far. i modfyed my HOB filter to act as my heater. CO2 diffuer chamber plus filter. and i saw this "making minerlized soil" and thought it may be something to do.
so to the questions! What is minerlized soil? i know its rich in nutrients. whice would benafit rooting plants.
what are the pros and cons of it? compaction? could i fix that by adding peat balls (from wal mart) or what ever there called?
what do i need to make it. or how would i obtain it? and what r the steps if i were to make it
