<sigh> Karen already read you the Riot Act, so I guess I will just
reiterate that. Nope, the Dupla method has worked just great for us with
only minor adjustments to nutrient dosing to account for slight differences
in tanks (fish load, plant types, etc). 

I know you've read my web page and I'm not holding anything back "to
maintain an edge". What you've read is what I do. No peat. No Jobes sticks.
No cat poop (that I know of).  The substrate is just as Dupla has said it
should be. 

Here is a mantra for you. Repeat this for 30 minutes every day for two
weeks before you set up your tank: "MORE IS NOT BETTER OOMMM". 

If you start to get creative with the substrate, here is the mantra you
will be chanting after a few months: "O-WA TA-GOO SIAM"
