I recently tried to do a Diana Walstad method tank, so far seems to be doing fine but the water is dark brown, like strong coffee, I used a cheap topsoil from Home Depot called EarthGro, I believe other people have used it (http://thegab.org/Plants/step-by-step-setting-up-a-walstad-type-natural-planted-tank.html) and capped it off with sea carib eco-complete substrate. so far ammonia 0, nitrites 0 and traces of nitrates

I am so sorry for not replying, I had to go out of town and the internet was not working there (small town in the middle of nowhere).
I will post an update today once I get home.
Thank all of you for your kind replies.
