Dirt and Laterite


Does anyone use Laterite in their tanks? if so how much should i be putting in?

was thinking enough to cover the bottom, may even 1/8th of an inch

Also was wondering if anyone has experienced using the following in their tank and how did it work out?

-blood and bone
-crushed shells
-osmocote slow release pellets

One last question, when you setup a new dirted tank, do you add in EI ferts (assuming your going for a high-tech tank) straight away?

Thanks all
