Hi, I'm new to the board and BRAND NEW to El Ntural approach so first post in this section. I'm loving the El Natural approach and eager to set up my existing Juwel 125 El Naturally It's desperate for a strip down so now's the time. I'm having trouble finding a suitable soil to use for the substrate and my back garden isn't suitable - it's mainly ash from the previous owners (welsh coal fires) and despite my adding loads of well rotted manure is still very 'ashy' It grows plants well enough but I wouldn't risk it in an aquarium Most of the bagged soils I have found have some kind of wetting agent which at best would be pointless in this situation and at worst could be a problem for my fish. I've read about MIracle Grow Organic soil on American sites but has anyone ever seen it here? If it isn't available over here what is? that works and settles quickly in the aquarium - fish will have to go in ASAP I know I could buy something like ADA aqua soil or Malay/Amazonia or EcoComplete, but they don't really seem in the spirit of EL Natural and I'd much prefer to spend the money on loads of plants!
