    On a LFS crawl ( Lifestyle Pet Hyper in Randburg ) spotted some new product on a trolley.

    hmm not to bad for a 3ft - should be able to rescape one with only two buckets.

    Now I need to find a tank to rescape ...

    I really like the "Lava soil"

    now the AF natrual substrate ... hmm that time will tell.

    to say it has loads of plant material - peat would be an understatement

    I mean loads

    experiment planted - most are from the original tank - that was Langa substrate .. going to be same light and just an airstone.

    as expected some floaters and a bit muddy.

    Don't know yet .. Suspect R1200 for both buckets - will see when I pay today, they had not loaded the stock on the system yet when I managed to get my paws on it.

    he he he ... ok so my tank is upside down ...

    lava soil should be used alone and the natural substrate should be capped

    Gonna leave it and see what is what .. I suspect a very very long time for this to clear.

    Rather surprised to see it clearing so well without any filtration ...

    just going to let it sit ...

    That cleared up nicely.
    That looks almost like pebbles, and has a different look than the ordinary substrate you normally get.

    Yeah .. for being in the wrong layer in the tanks substrate it is not too bad. Still prefer the lava substrate ... but need to find a tank to rescape ;-)
