This is still the first filling,I haven't done a w/c yet,I'm going to test for ammonia,nitrates,nitrites,do a w/c and get the cycle started.

If this is as successful as I've heard,I might be doing all my tanks this way.I have lots of soil and bdbs left,and still spent less than a single bag on eco.5.49 for the dirt,9 for the bdbs.

I went 1 1/2 inches for dirt and cap.found out by sloping it,the air all bubbles out of the top of the hill.
Interested to see a dirted Tank take off.
