  1. I'm getting more interested in this previously neglected tank (http://www.qldaf.com/forums/general-aquarium-discussion-19/wtd-low-maintenance-aquarium-design-ideas-129491/). I bought some soil today (http://www.thetechden.com.au/ADA_Amazonia_Soil_9l_p/104-021.htm) in preparation for some proper planting. I was wondering if the nutrients will leech into the water, thus fertilising a little anubia I have attached to some driftwood?
  2. Hi all, I am redesigning my 4ft tank (moving on from tropicals) and depending on substrate I will be either moving back to fancy goldies or trying something new with an axolotl. I have already bought two bags of Fluval Plant and Shrimp Stratum Substrate 8kg (so 16kg in total and it has already arrived) as the plan is to have a large gold vine driftwood centerpiece and live plants and mosses etc on and around it and get the plants established before restocking the tank. My question is, is the Fluval soil safe and ideal for axolotls considering they're in contact with it constantly? Or should I cap the substrate with something else like a sand? If I need to cap it, what would be best? Last time I had a live planted tank I just had plain play sand (I was a newbie lol!) which was not a good idea for the plants I had so I wanna try and do it right this time. Thanks in advance to everyone who replies.

  9. hey guys like i said i would. i got a big shipment of shrimp soil from normal, to powder to super powder. there's quite a few bags and here's the link to my post in the dry goods section. as i said before, i was just buying heaps to help save costs on shipping which made shipping only $5 per bag. anyone still want some? http://www.qldaf.com/forums/dry-goods-13/fs-benibachi-shrimp-soil-65418/#post419831 nolan, nickm986 if you guys still want some bags i'll give you preference as you said you were interested.

  11. Hi, I'm trying to set up a planted tank as cheap as i can. I researched that garden soil under a layer of gravel or sand is a safe option. I was wandering what type/brand of soil and where i could get it.. preferably Bunnings since its down the road. I'd also love to hear how this method has worked for people who have tried it. thanks!
