I loved the idea of a dirted tank from day 1, but I kept hearing about "problems" if you like to move your plants, and that it's not a substrate for beginners....but an hour to settle is nothing to me.....unless the consequences are more than just cloudy water.

I'm curious about the down side here, because so many hobbyists stay clear of the dirted tank.

Does the disruption change the water chemistry or have any negative consequences to the fish?

If you have any advice or tips on a setup I would love to hear them...
