So I've had an interest in figuring out about mineralization of top soil for the aquarium substrate for over a week now.
Not until I came upon reading page 17 of How-To: mineralizating Soil Substrate, by Aaron Talbot (claiming this is not his own recipe but he is passing it along.)
Anyway a lot of this information isn't new and very common to come by. This is
a common recipe
for the planted aquariums. Although after reading many pages of the thread (not all of them) I happened to come across some important information that may be very useful to others that are interested in help recreating a more pure biotope by testing using the following method Diana K talks about in page 17 of the following thread about making Mineralized Soil Substrate.How-To: Mineralized Soil Substrate, by Aaron Talbot
After figuring out what kind of substrate composition is needed all one would have to then do is get some soil testing kits to test the nutrients.
