    My plants and fish are happy 🙂
    They are bigger granules, so I put a small layer of dark sand on top for my bottom dwellers.

    The media could not be loaded.

     You can easily crumble it and mix it with water to create a potting paste. Then you can use it to secure vegetation and rocks to the walls of your terarium! I also mixed some into the soil at the bottom. Before buying this product, I tried grinding a clay-based aquarium substrate from aqueon, and that was nearly impossible…

    I have not had any time to see how this soil will work better or worse then any other substrate yet but I will come back and give my experience with it, good or bad in time (whenever I remember that I said this)

    If you were worried about the 7-8 ish lb bag being enough for a standard 10 gallon, don’t be. It’s the perfect amount unless you want to build it up super high in the back.

    As you can see I have about an inch in the front and right side and about 3.5 inches in the back left corner.

    Hope this helps.

    P.s. Corn is technically a fruit so any drink made from it is technically juice.

    Be gentle with this substrate as it will crumble easily. Rinse with low water pressure and small quantities at a time. In high flow aquariums a cap might be helpful. It grows plants like crazy and I didn’t see to much of an ammonia spike.

  5. This soil has been great for my shrimp and plants the only thing is it is more difficult to wash but overall is would recommend this soil

    I love the soil it very very good for the shrimp and my plants are thriving but the soil is a challenge to wash and when I put it in the tank after washing it twice the water was brown from the soil. So when you use it make sure to wash very thoroughly.
