PMAS (poor man's Amano substrate) is not my design but Bob's.

I do have a substrate design (HTBASS) documented on my web page
http://home.infinet.net/teban/how-to.html as well as a lot of other
information about how to customize the substrate to your needs.

The simplest substrate design for HTBASS is subsoil + peat + aquarium
gravel on top. Subsoil is soil you find about a foot below the surface
(depending on the depth of the dark topsoil layer). It contains trace
minerals but is very low in organic material, nitrogen and phosphate.
