So what type of media mix does everyone recommend for a circulating bog? Someone posted that perlite should be kept to a minimum so I must ask do I just mix like a 20/80 perlite/peat? I plan on mixing everything tomorrow. Also, my setup is going to pump in water at ~5" from the top of the bog and drain at the same level on the opposite side, both with ebb & flow type bulkheak fittings, any foreseeable problems with this? screens and sediment prefilters will be installed as well to prevent peat run-off.
im going to drive around and find a whiskey barrel half to install the pond liner into, it should work great, if im correct...
