Laffs....Isn't that the truth.....Plants do love dirt and that is one of my biggest problems too....They grow so well that I am running out of space for tanks.....My back bedroom might end up being another fish room at this rate....lol....
Hopseeker-No, I don't use carbon in any of my tanks, however, I always keep fresh unused carbon on hand for emergencies.
IMO/E-carbon/activated charcoal is a personal choice- more than a need. It is short lived and can't be recharged.
