I’ve used it. It does lower KH as nearly all Aqua soils do.

Did you like it? I'm aware that most if not all aqua soils lower KH, im just not sure if some lower it more than others.

Loved it, would have used it in the 120 had it not cost a small fortune!

I'll probably go with it then, I'm only doing a 15 gallon so im assuming 1 bag will be sufficient. I can always cap with cheap blasting sand.

It will cause an ammonia spike, but for a shorter period of time vs the other hotter soils out there.

Yup, well aware of the aqua soil ammonia spikes, which are no bother to me. I usually end up cycling my tanks for a good 6 month out of pure laziness. 2 years in storage after purchase, 6 months to cycle, its just how I roll!! 😎

I love adventures. There are only so many hours in a day. I have to get others to do the work of extra adventures. 🤣

Note to self: reminder to send Guppysnail the bill when it comes in!

I've only tried Tropical's Aquasoil and I'm happy with it. If that's an option you consider. My kh from tap is pretty high, around 20, so it couldnt really make any changes on my kh and ph to be fair. Has been a while since I didnt check it but the last time I checked the lowest I've seen was around 13 if I'm not mistaken.

I went with @Mmiller2001 backing and ordered a bag, if he 'likes it a lot' thats all the endorsement I need. But darn!!! at 40 bucks a bag I'm not sure I would have tried it if it was for a bigger tank!

Yup, and imagine using Tropica or ADA at those price points. I figured a bit over 400 to do my 120 if I went with Landen. The best thing about Landen is it won't go to mush as quickly as the other brands. You should get 5 years or more out of it. Just recharge it every so often.
