[Killietalk] Nothobranchius and clay.
I was reading the Jan/Feb 2006 JAKA where Brian Watters talks of the
habitats of Nothobranchius. He mentions the importance of swelling
clay in the soils of Nothobranchius habitats.
Has anyone tried to duplicate the actual soil in captivity? I wonder
if sodium bentonite clay would work or not? It stays moist, actually
kind of sticky out of water and expands to 10x its size in water. It
is used for drilling and also for large ponds.
