I was wondering if those of you who have mixed Fullers Earth with soil would share how stable your water parameters were specifically ph ,gh, and kh. I have read of large ph, kh drops when using safe t sorb but all of those instances seem to be using the sts as the only substrate.

My plan is a sprinkle of O+ on the bottom, a 1/2" or so layer of Fullers Earth, 1" or so of good clay based yard soil, and cap with bdbs. Because I dont care if the Fullers Earth turns to mush, it may even be advantageous in this application if it did, I will probably be using kitty litter but I may use safe t sorb.

If you think I will gain no advantage please express that as well.

Thanks for looking!
