Thanks PewPew......

And its as simple as that too.....just about any dirt will work that doesn't have any added ferts..... as organic as you can find, top soil, dirt in your yard...etc....sift it first....I use small diameter rabbit type wire to sift my soil to get all the big chunks of stuff out......you don't need to rinse the dirt or sand that you use the cap off the dirt...but you do need to make several back to back water changes to get the water cleared up...... you can do this before or after you plant...but I found it easier to make the water changes first......

What size tank are you planning to setup natural.....
