Re: Garden Soil

I've used many types of soil without heating it.
Some people let it set under water before putting it in the tank but I don't think this
is necessary either.
Potting soil is better than garden soil if you have hard water because it is acidic.

Get a hold of Diana Walstad's book; Ecology of the Planted Aquarium
