LOL, I picked up 10 Mal trumpets just before I started seeing a lot of the activity. I have started to see a few babies as well so perhaps the will help as more appear.
I would say the dirted part is a couple of inches at most then black sand, approx inch or so, less in certain areas because of blooms that have thoroughly disrupted the substrate. I will add that I am considering pulling all of the plants rocks etc and finishing what the bubbles have started and mix up the sub sand/dirt and recap with a couple inches of sand.
I may have more dirt than needed but i would not think much more, how long does this process usually last or is this a, while the soiil is bio-degrading this will happen, scenario?
What is being released, one place I read was CO2, though I was thinking the plants were potentially part of the problem by them generating O2.
thanks for the feedback.
I've jumped into the deep end. ( 1st planted tank flooded 4-15-18 ) - Dirted with sand cap - Very messy when water was added.
