Thanks for the prayers DQ! Yeah, I talked OFL today, thank God for her help and encouragement or I might have quit already. I finally gave up on buying any soil, and just dug some up from my yard...I hope it works lol! I will start assembling the tank tomorrow...wish I had plants already..but patience is needed I guess lol. It's very difficult having a 10g tank sitting empty while my 3 boys are in 1g bowls, but it will be worth it in the long run. (I hope)..I can do this!You'll definitely be in my prayers. You could ask OldFishlady about soil for your npt.
