 Hello  guys  now  i  have  been  owning  planted  and  non  planted  fish  tanks  for  quite  some  time  and  it  has  always  given  me  pleasure  to  keep  digging  up  the  tanks  in  search  of  natural  resources  in  having  the  best  natural  substrate  instead  of  going  for  branded  products,  i  guess  everyone  in  this  forum  has  always  been  trying  to  find  out  what  more  can  we  do  in  our  planted  tanks  substrate  instead  of  going  for  branded  products  in  which  we  dont  have  to  bother  for  a  long  time  in  taking  care.
 
 So  kindly  pool  in  the  knowledge  if  any  one  has  the  best  way  for  natural  substrate.
 1)  I  have  tried  this  mix  which  i  mix  in  sphagnum  moss  with  regular  garden  soil  and  having  a  thin  layer  of  compost  at  the  bottom  of  the  tank,  this  method  i  have  been  using  for  almost  3  months  and  my  plants  are  really  doing  well.
 
 Now  if  any  one  has  tried  any  different  method  please  be  kind  enough  to  guide  in  the  right  direction   Thumb Up

 I  always  use  a  mixture  of  20:1  of  laterite  dust  and  single  super  phosphate  layer  covered  with  river  sand  and  gravel  for  my  planted  tanks.  I  collect  my  own  laterite  dust  from  the  red  morum  (laterite  nodules)  quarries  by  sieving  the  morum.  Never  had  any  need  for  any  other  substrate.
