Hello everyone!

Ok, so I already bought 2 bags of Organic Choice "Potting mix"Miracle Grow, but on another channel, they are saying that the Miracle grown Organic Choice "Garden Soil" is better!!! They said that it has less ammonia and it doesn't take as long to cycle... 


Well, I don't mind if it takes 4 to 6 weeks to cycle. I am ok with that. But is it better in other ways? 

Which one do you recommend? I know Dustin Recommends the Organic "Potting Mix... but was wondering if the other "Garden Soil" is a new soil and if it's better. 


I am about to set up my 55 gallon any day now, within a week or 2 max... so I would love to know what Dustin recommends or what anyone has heard about these 2.

Any thoughts??? Thanks!!!

Thanks Guys & gals!!!

my local lowes did not have the "miracle grow" brand now, i got the only organic potting soil they had, made sure it was the same spec as the MG brand from what people were posting to Youtube.  I think my 26T tank only took about 2 week and it was reading 0 amm.  i added 4 fish and about half the plants i wanted, all i could afford at this time :), and i am still at 0-.25.  i think you could be okay with anything as long as it does not have manure in it,
