what lives in the deep? Soil sub question.
I've started a new tank.
So I have made my own mineralised top soil.
It was not thoroughly mineralised as I figured a little ammonia leaching during set up wouldn't be a bad thing. If it creates lots of algae I can always toss a few shrimp or ottos into the tank while the new plants get settled.
So here is my concern. Do I have insects to worry about? I mean, I let this stuff get bone dry, so there must not be any worms. But are there any other "critters" I should be concerned about?
I've already planted, and capped with an inch of sand, but I figured that I may as well ask. I'd rather not have a bunch of root-eating insects show up 6 months from now.
