Just curious. How many of those out there reuse their ADA Aqua Soil after a scape? Is there a rule of thumb you have regarding this. i.e. It is generally okay to reuse Aqua Soil if it's been used for less that 6 months, etc...

I have ADA Aqua Soil and I realize the when I pulled up those rooted stem plants, a ton of dust kicks up. How do you guys deal with this, how do you get rid of this.

My Aqua Soil has been used less than 6 months. The soil still hold it's circular shape.

Please all you guru's our there, I need some advice!

Yup you can reuse it. I talked with a ADA distributor in Vietnam, and she said she just dry the substrate out for a bit and reuse them with no problem at all, Im not sure about the PH problem did not asked her. But her tank which has been rescaped atleast 2 times and the substrate in use for almost 2 years was still doing fine and growing alot of high light plants such as erios and HC ect ect.

OH dang! Why didn't I think about drying out the Aqua Soil and reuse it in scapes. I should save me a ton messy spills.

If I dry it out and reuse, would that mean I will have to cycle the tank again?
