Thanks Diana. I hope so. I've done three tanks and some nanos (maybe 5) with soil in almost 4 years now. I was due for an anaerobic mess, I guess.

I am still getting low reads for Amonia 0.25, Nitrite 1.0 and Nitrate about 10. I'm using about half rainwater, now to get GH 150, KH 180 and pH 7.5. I think everybody in there is happy. Except for the shrimp. I'm considering removing some out to a small container NPT to ensure my population. I think not as many shrimp fry are surviving with less hiding places. Hopefully they'll pick up production again when the tank settles in. I could do with less molly fry though and have added a female Betta and four juvi Bosmanii Rainbows. I tried to add black worms in the dark two days ago, though I'm wondering if any made it into the substrate. The fish just had a feast. I think I'll try again in a month or so, and bury them. I love my tank.
