Cal aqua black earth?

Starting a new tank in couple weeks and still trying to figure out my substrate as I am new to planted tanks. Has anyone used the black earth soil? I was gonna use miracle gro and cap with black diamond sand but seems I cant get the sand in Canada.

Did you call Manus about coal slag abrasives? (Black Diamond, Black Beauty, Black Magic, etc. are all coal slag product names)

When you refer to "black earth" are you talking about a type of soil or a product name? Top soil or potting mix are typically used in dirted aquariums, whereas "black earth" is typically used as filler for something other than growing plants.
