Looking at setting up my first dirted tank as I have managed to get hold of another tank. Going to just run it with plants only for a while until I get it established so not too worried about messing up and killing any fish. It's around 45 gallons so I have a reasonably amount of space to play with.
What kind of dirt do I use and where do I get it from (I'm in the UK)?
Do I cap it or leave it?
I'm just after a bit of starting advice really. I only just done my first planted tank with a sand substrate, it's looking great at the moment and I've decided to go all in and try out a dirted tank. It's a spare tank so I'm in no rush to get setup and I'm willing to take my time to get it right.
