scarhbar created the topic: I need mucho help with dirted tank!

I am moving, so I figure I will dirt the substrate in my 55 gallon when I set the tank back up. I need to know what brand of soil to get. The only one I can find commonly availible, is this:

www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1v/R-100619045/h_d2/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053

Is this ok? or do you see any potential issues with the fish accepting this?

The purpose of life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave with a well-preserved body, but rather to Slide in Sideways, completely used up, yelling and screaming, what a ride!

This link was from a thread on here recently, here`s the rest of it... www.oscarfishlover.com/oscar-fish-advice-forum/33-all-other-aquatic-chat/180492-help-switching-to-dirted-tank

I would like to see one up and running but wouldn`t want to try it myself, i still think it would be messy lol, well until it settled anyway.
