    will this substrate work...

    I was wondering will this substrate for mex pings work. 25% lava rock, 35-40% small gravel, and the rest is peat. I tried to see how it lets water pass through, I top watered and it's really (missing a word) non-compact.
    This is how it looks:




    Maybe I should change ratio of ingredients? What do you think?

    One would think that, but somebody(maybe it was Pyro) told me that ABG has grown P . cyclosecta on pure charcoal, so they can handle a course mix.
    How much is this aqautic plant soil that is sweeping the nation?

    Cheers,

    Joe
