Post Your Topsoil Full Tank Shots

I would like to see some pics of members who have the mineralized topsoil for their substrate.

Give a small list of what plants you have and what luck you have had with them.

Get to shooting those pics and posting them!

I will go get some pics of my own

This was a fun setup. I grew some dwarf hairgrass, downoi, bacopa monneri, blyxa japonica, Taiwan moss, java fern, and whatever the dwarf chain plant was in the middle. I had good luck with all the plants, not that there is too much luck in this hobby

Nice little tank! Those chain swords really can make decent center pieces when they get wild, I had some reach 12".


Anyone have shots of open soil, so we can see the color and texture?
