Soil Substrates and nutrients (I think)

I don't know where this first came from... I seem to have missed it the

I don't know who wrote this originally, but I do _not_ as a general rule
use (or advocate) soil substrates. I use soil in pots for specific plants
that need it. The only tank I have with a soil substrate has been nothing
but problems since it was set up.(1 1/2 years ago) Inertia is all that has
kept me from taking it apart and replacing the substrate with laterite.
Just a quick note of thanks to Karen Randall. You're welcome. Thanks for
your kind words, and I'm glad I've been able to help.
