Hi guys I just got myself garden soil coco peat and clay for a nano low-tech tank (45x20x30cm)
but quite confused bout the arrangement.

My intention is to build up 1.5" of soil capped with 1" or maybe less of black quartz sand
as for clay and coco peat do I mixed with the soil itself or should I arrange layer by layer
I seen some aquascaper did it in this way that is peat at the very bottom layer follow by clay then soil and sand?
But I thought coco peat main role is to improve the circulation of gases and water inside the soil?


The peat and clay itself how much should I add in is enough?

Thanks Edvet this is a good read, I will need to read through over and over again to digest it,
but I still need a direct answer to my queries :) as I'm in the middle of settling up my tank so..
