When the US distributors first started their online magazine, their website
stated that Power Sand contained Pumice, peat, and a nutrient-rich clay.
That is the "propaganda I refered to. Users of the product advized me that
it contained pumice gravel in varying sizes, depending on the intended depth
of the tank (what's the point of that?). 1/4 inch seemed like a good size,
so That's what I went with. The descriptions I got made it to be mostly
pumice. That would make it mostly non-organic.
Is it possible that Amano is distributing a different product under the same
name in different countries. If the stuff is very dark and contains chunks
of wood, then Amano is making a killing by re-packaging potting soil.
