    Thank you for the kind words.

    I too love Corydoras and keep them in all my tanks (all of which have Montmorillonite clay) except the tank that is a SE Asia biotope (corys are not indigenous). I keep C. sterbai, C. sterbai albino, and C. aeneus.
    Okay, you have inspired me lol. Thank you for your posts, Roy!

    I was working outside some today, and noticed the ingredients of this ALL ORGANIC soil conditioner, and its advertisements for working, specifically, with clay heavy soils.

    I'm not going to over explain this one.

    Get the natural kitty litter, get this stuff, mix it together, and put a fine grain sand or gravel over top, and you have a virtual ADA product for pennies on the dollar.

    Btw. If you know me, you know you do not need to ask which home improvement store to buy this.

    If there is enough interest in this, I will buy a bag of it and a bag of the kitty litter and mix it for $1 auction sale at nautilus.

    Ha! About 10 years ago I had a tank where I did a mixture of soil and kitty litter with red akadama as a cap. The plants exploded in it and honestly I'm kicking myself for not doing something similar for any of my current tanks.
