I figure I might as well start from the top.
Once upon a time, I had about 4 fish tanks...that is until a lightning bolt decided to come to my house and say hello.
Long story short, my house burned down and all of my poor fishies/shrimps went with it. Thank god I had good insurance!
It's been almost a year, and the contractors my insurance hired are putting the finishing touches on my house, so I figure it's about time to start up a new tank.
I've never done a dirt tank before, but I like the logic behind it, so I figure I'll give it a shot.
Step one: Get the soil ready. I've got my bag of Miracle Gro Organic Potting soil. Luckily I had a window screen laying around in the basement of the house I'm renting, so sifting all the bark and rocks out wasn't too much of a pain.
