    Hey Eric,

    Hartz is a brand name of cat litter. I am not really sure if we have calcareous clay catitter in the states but I am sure a quick trip to one of out many pet supermarkets would provide a fast answer. I'll be going later this week, maybe I can find something

    Thanks for the site update eric. Hmm, all I can really find out so far is that the ph is 5, and it has the following:

    Substrate Data (Element mg/kg)
    Al 8150 Ba 23.5 Ca 169 Co 9.7 Cr 68 Cu 7.7 Fe 9480 K 1060

    I can't exactly read all of this and make sense of it at the same time though.

    Those are the atomic symbols as denoted on the Periodic Table

    Al = Aluminum
    Ba = Barium
    Ca = Calcium
    Co = Cobalt
    Cr = Chromium
    Cu = Copper
    Fe = Iron
    K = Potassium

    And the numbers are how much mass (in milligrams) each component contributes to a single kilogram of total cat litter

    Thanks Pyro, here's a little more detail for you:

    Al 8150 As 0 Ba 23.5 Be 0.4 Be 0.4 Ca 169 Cd 0Co 9.7 Cr 68 Cu 7.7 Fe 9480 K 1060 Mg 1590 Mn 20.1 Na 61.9 Ni 13.9 Pb 0 Sb 0 Se 0 Sn 0 TI 0 V 28.3 Zn 41.2 Ag 0

    pH= 4.7
    CEC= 43.0 me./100g

    So...would this work? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] So far i've seen that the pieces are 1-3mm and stay seperate when wet. (don't break down too easy)

    As = Arsenic
    Be = Berylium
    Cd = Cadmium
    Mg = Magnesium
    Mn = Manganese
    Na = Sodium
    Ni = Nickle
    Pb = Lead
    Sb = Antimony
    Se = Selinium
    Sn = Tin
    Ti = Titanium
    V = Vanadium
    Zn = Zinc
    Ag = Silver

    (And all that without having to get my periodic table out [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] )

    This might work but I think you would want to look for something that is more calcium based, like Eric said, true calcareous clay. The total part calcum in these mixes is really small over all; 169 milligrams per kilogram works out to 169 parts per million. If you are trying to calcify the media it would probably need a bit more that that.

    Wow, nice job on the elements. Hmm, does it necessarily need the clay? I could always just toss an antacid in it. (calcium carbonate)

    I think the antacid would cause some funky reaction with the peat. What you might want to do that I have taken to doing is just substitute potting soil instead of peat when making your mix. But I will caution that in my mix the potting soil only makes up 1 part in about 10
