tx for sharing the link
i was shocked at 1st
reading about this worm casting thing
but after running it thro my hands
its really black & free of fibres
may i ask why its better not to mix with gravel ?
i have 2-3mm aqua gravel
the worm casting is so expensive
probably sparsely mix it with soil as u said
i read about boiling the soil
is it necessary ?
the amount of work
it put me off already
even b4 starting haha..
is red potting soil usable ?
according to the nursery operator
red soil is richer than the black soil
& also less of other unwanted materials inside
cap with the 2-3mm aqua soil good enough right ?
no need fine sand
Bro... why so much work. the soil is not cheap but you will need like 3-5 liter?
just buy it off the self.
Aquascaping got too many variables...you dont want to spend too much effort on DIY soil.
later if things tak jadi- you can at least rule out the soil and move on to others.
things like filter, fert, CO2 lights etc can change easily. how are you gonna change the soil with out destroying all the scape?
