I was reading a book on Aqautic Plants and it gave the following list from best to not so best(top to bottom):

  • Eco-Complete
  • Flourite
  • Potting Soil
  • Sand
  • Gravel

Is potting soil really used for planted aquariums? It said with extreme care you are capable of using it. Has any one else heard or has tried to use Potting Soil?

Most potting soil sold on the west coast has a lot of added fertilizer and organic material in it.

I would highly suggest you NOT use it.
