Thanks for reminding me. I am a little confused on peat for this application. What kind should I use on the bottom? The only peat I see at any LFS is for the filter.cS said:Don't forget to put a layer of peat on the bottom of the tank, but only enough to barely cover the bottom.
I have not tried what you are asking but I do have it under Fluorite. I would think in time the sand would sift itself down through the Aquatic soil to the bottom. Then the Aquatic soil will be too light.lemonblazer said:I'm going to setup a 90g planted soon and wondered about using Schultz Aquatic soil with sand. I want to use about 3 inches of schultz underneath about a 1/2 inch of sand. Does this sound okay.
Also is there a downside to using Schultz as opposed to flourite? I can get Schultz at a much lower price than flourite, but I rather spend the extra if it's better.
Just want to jump back to CEC, a larger difference between fluorite and profile.Steve Pituch said:You are right on the CEC: Profile Schultz is very high (33.2), and Flourite is quite low (1.7).
