Profile Aquatic Plant "soil"
Was wondering if anyone out there is still using this stuff. I dug
through the APD archives and found only a handful of people that
reported using it, and at the time, they had just begun experimenting
with the product, so long-term results hadn't been available. I did some
research on arcillite, the calcined clay that the product is composed
of, and found, among other things, that it has a proported decent to
high CEC due to the heating process, and that it is inert and contains
very little to no iron. I was thinking of using it along with a portion
of Dupla laterite in the bottom 1/3 to 1/2 of the substrate, to enhance
the CEC thereof.
I've since talked to a few people who are using it, and while one of
them states that it has not affected water pH or general hardness, a few
others have reported otherwise.
Any comments before I break down and go out to buy a bag so that I may
test the stuff?
Thanks in advance,
