So tomorrow i'm going to a nursery that caries this stuff and was wondering if its worth trying, this will of course be for a large cichlid tank so i'm not too worried about it being an awesome plant substrate but there will be plants, anyone got pics of some of it in use and can someone tell me what i would expect to pay? i'm going to be filling 36x24 about 3 inches deep for the most part and i'll probably need 120 pounds for that, any information is appreciated


also i'm mixing it, 2 parts natural and 1 part dark red

less is more with this stuff a single $10 50lb bag did a full susbstrate in my 150g with a 72x18 footprint around 2.5" deep. A single bag should be plenty for your needs.

Don't get the red as the dye washes off when you rinse it just get the natural colored version.
