Fluval biostrata is 20% off at Petco. Is that a good deal?


Recommended Posts

I'm new and slowly trying to build up stuff for my big planted tank and buying things on sale to build up.

Is the fluval soil good and is this actually a good deal? Or if I wait for black Friday or something will there be other deals or other better soil to try?

Cheap stuff I have used in planted tanks:

- laterite (fluorite red)

- natural clay kitty litter 

- aquasoil (can be dirt from the backyard or worm castings or organic potting mixes etc) 

- BDBS as a cap or pool filter sand as a cap

never used that specific fluval soil bc honestly any soil will work with proper assistance. 

i can’t speak on if it’s a good deal or not but i hopped on here to at least give a few cheap planted tank options for some layers I’ve personally used. It sounds like a decent deal to me though. 🙃
