  1. 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.

    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.

    Only been using it for a minute, but like to use it as a base in my natural aquariums. Plants seem to thrive and love it, fish dont mind and water quality doesnt seemed affected, but these are natural aquariums so it is being capped with 2in of sand

    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.

    I was having an ammonia spike but after adding this to the tank on top of my other substrate, my ammonia level dropped from .5 to .2 within a few hours. As you can see in my photo it’s cloudy, that’s on me. It needed to be rinsed a lot more, so make sure to rinse VERY well.
