Although I may try it with some of my colombo florabase.....
Luis, your idea was very innovative. Maybe you should buy it and blitz it then repackage it, double the price and sell it on
What gave you the idea and why did you want to do it in the first place ? Just to try, or did you want a nutritious sand. Or something nicer for corys ?
Funny story really. Wife made some steaks for dinner the night before and when I tried them for lunch today they were as hard as leather. Not to worry, got the moulinex, some pepper, and garlic and minced the lot. Then fried it with egg.
Eating it the meat was like powder. After lunch I had a conference call with some guys in malta and ireland, and was looking at the tank. Looked at the substrate and thought maybe I should have bought more ebi sand.
Looked down and saw the plate of food, moulinex still in the kitchen and a bad of amazonia being prepped for a micro tank on the floor, to setup with the kids later at night.
Shiitttee.. No way!! Will it work? LOL..
After the call I rushed to the kitchen, washed the moulinex, with a cereal bowl dropped some substrate on the moulinex and pushed down, instant powder.
Now how to put it on the tank... Stopped the filters and koralia. Lowered carefully the bowl with the powder, and just sprinkled over the plants, and then pushed down with the hands. After 10 minutes turn on the filters and koralia and was amazed at how it just came up all together.
Came to the forum and decided to share. It should work with any substrate.
