1)The top soil\garden soil we have here is really sandy, and i don't know if there is enough organic matter in it ! So can i use something like crumbled dried leaves or dried cow dung or a slight amount of NPK fert added to the soil to make it more fertile ?
Not sure about this one!
You definitely should not add any organic matter to the soil. We go though a lot of trouble to make the top soil mineralized (by forcing fast decomposition of organic matter before adding it to the aquarium). Although sandy soils will be poor in nutritions, you'll create more trouble with organic fertilizers
