Grizzly Posted February 6, 2022 Share Posted February 6, 2022 So to start I am in the research part of wanting to start a Walstad method tank. And anyone with experience in these type of tanks I would love any experienced tips or advice. From what Im reading and watching on YouTube some say just simple soil can lose it’s nutrients in around a year and seen a YouTube video where someone added a lot of different supplements to the soil for it to last for years. So Im leaning towards that but any advice is appreciated. Also I would like to try the no filter part. Anyone try this with fish and not have issues? I plan on doing this in a 20long and stocking with different crypts and root plants and having shrimp and some kind of fish but don’t know what yet. Just know if im not using a filter it should be under stocked. Also question about snails… are Malaysian trumpet snails a bad idea with these tanks? Seeing as how they live in the substrate and could release dirt into the water column? I have them in all my tanks (it’s a love hate relationship lol) they always seem to get in all my tanks. Like I said before any experienced advice or tips are greatly appreciated 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
