I am getting to repot my existing Mexican Pings and am expecting to add three more to my collection in the next week. I read Joseph's "sticky" on the care and feeding of Pings and he recommends silica sand...that I have...Schultz aquatic plant soil and iron oxide as the planting media. None of the local pet stores carry it, or the iron oxide. Does anyone have an idea where to purchase these two items?
If not, any other ideas of what I can use?
I have acess to plenty of beach sand, which is nothing but ground up shells and coral, right outside my door. Could that be used in an any way?
