"On a side note: I never "pull up" plants from the substrate. If I intend to move or remove them I will just cut them all the way at the substrate and leave the roots in the substrate. I personally feel this helps to airate the substrate as well as add nutrients. Maybe I am completely wrong."

This is probably not a good idea....the reason is that the roots left in the substrate will decay and become anerobic, which will lead to a number of problems.

Personally, I think it would be a sin to mix ADA Aquasoil with anything. Keep it pure and you will be rewarded more than you know.
