Whats up fishtank people! I am finally setting up my first real dirted tank. I have been using a bowl to experiment on but now I want to go all out with a real tank. I've gathering resources for my next big tank and I want this one to have tons of plant growth. My last tanks had no dirt and I have gotten the "ok" stuff along with this so called "plant substrate". Don't remember the name. I have got nothing but algae everywhere and every big load of plants I get they die off in about a week, EVEN FREAKON ANACHCHARIS. I have learn a lot about keeping plants and now I want to do it right with the right stuff.

What are the best BRANDS of dirt I can use at an affordable price?

Miracle Grow Organic Choice Potting Mix is what I use.

It works well.

Anacharis can't die if you have the wrong substrate,,, It will thrive even in bare gravel or floating as it gets its nutrients from leaves, so its probably a lighting problem
