Hi Everyone,

I'm getting back into planted tanks after limited success in the past. I've started a dirted tank for the first time and would like to post here to get help as needed and purchase some items.

I'm in the Lancaster Ca area if any of you are nearby perhaps we can trade plants, gear, etc...

Attached photos are a sequence that started 2 months ago.

For better or worse my substrate consisted of garden soil plus a little bit of steer manure. Should have went Halstadt but hadn't run across her at that time.

I had massive ammonia production for awhile but that's settled down.

I frequently get streams of 1/4 inch bubbles from substrate. I assume it's nitrogen from anarobic processes and would like confirmation if anyone has thoughts on it.

Best regards,
Rob Farmelo
