Nature of soil in tanks?

I live in Portland, OR, and we have pretty amazing varieties of soils around here that have a high mineral content, and some with high clay, as well. I'm wondering what kind of properties mineralized topsoil has? Is it sandy, or silty, or loamy, before you mix it with the clay? Where does the Miracle Gro Organic come from?

I wish I had an extra tank to experiment with, but I'm a bit too poor at the moment. Has anyone done experiments with their local soil?

Welcome!

California or Georgia

How big do you need? Petco has their $1/gal sale going on right now, makes it very affordable.

I am currently doing an experiment in a 10G with soil from my property paired with Nature's Care Organic (similar to MGOPM).
