also, do you just use Turface or do you combine it with something else? I'd like more info on this if you have time.
My 90g mature tank is tropical fish, pair of large angles, various platties, molleys, guppies, rainbows. My angels keep the live bearers population in check. My tank has organic humus compost, bottom layer. On top of that, I have proturf and sandbox sand mixture. It is still feeding the root feeders. Cool thing is, the fish waste settles and keeps the top very nutrient rich. This really helps to kick off the new plants growth. I've experimented with adding iron nails into my substrate to enrich the iron in some of my other tanks. Those tanks really only need trace, nitrates and potassium added.
