Hello Folks,

This is to announce a new revised page in Ecology of the Planted Aquarium. I've seen enough mistreatment of soils lately here and other places to put a new Q&A into my book (p. 137). It pointedly addresses this common problem.

My website has a Revisions link that contains all 5 revised pages made since 2013, including the new 2020 one on soil mistreatment.

It's not the particular soil you choose as much as how you treat it!

Excellent! I downloaded the revisions and will print a copy to put in my hardback. If I use potting soils straight from the bag, my motto is, "Don't over-do it!" Keep the soil layer thin, and make sure the cap is not too thick or has particles that are too fine.

Never fear!

The only new books offered by vendors like Amazon and Baker & Taylor (from link you showed) are up-to-date. The older printing (11th) was cleared out in January 2020 for the 12th reprinting.

In November 2019, I also asked printer/tech folk to change the eBook, so everything at this time should be "up to snuff."

If you don't get what you want, please let me know.
