I tried soil in a small tank. The plants liked it, but it looked dirty after
I disturbed the initial setup, and the water stank more and more as the soil
organics rotted. The resulting sulfur compound was a fish killer. Maybe the
sewer effect was due to the bat guano and worm casings in the potting soil
though. Anyway, I'm a Flourite guy now.
