  • Hey Shawn. I added dirt to my sand bed. It has worked really well for me. I got the idea from a book on fresh water planted tanks. True, rooted plants, like seagrass get a fair amount of nutrients through their roots. So it makes sense to give them something good down there. I used dirt right from my yard. If you want to spend money, you can go and buy garden soil, just avoid anything with pearlite-the white styrofoam balls. Once you have it, soak it in fresh water for a month or two. This gives it time for all the chemical reactions and other mysterious stuff to happen, before you put it into your tank.

    As for how much, I'd suggest an inch or two in depth, with an inch or two of sand on top of it. You'll probably want to put some sand beneath the dirt too, to get the sand bed depth you want. Hope this helps!

    That's great to hear you're having success with seagrasses! Do you have a thread I could follow?
    Hi Shawn,

    I realize you are no longer taking names for the group buy. Should one of the 24 people back out and that spot is able to replaced, let me know as I would be thrilled to take that spot.

    Thank you for your consideration.
