  2. Introductions and Greets
    Yesterday (June 13, 2020) I did a tank teardown and switched to a soil substrate after carefully reading The Ecology of The Planted Aquarium. I don't know how much money I've spent over the years on chemicals and gadgets. I have chased what seems to be the siren call of a flourishing planted...

    Below is a recent letter I received: "I bought your book "Ecology of Planted Tank" on Amazon Kindle. It is very helpful.

    I'm a new npt and I couldn't find a suitable soil today so I came home with an organic compostmix without frets and a certified organic soil activator by naked farmer if you want to look it up. I don't know if I can use either of these so any help would be great. Matt
