Default Re: No newts in water...for MONTHS

@ Ed - I use the API test kit the ones with the drops. it's less than a year old.
My PH is between 8.0 - 8.2 both out of the tap and in the tank.

@Molch - I have this nice potting soil from the local garden center it's there very own soil derived from compost.... is that something i could use... once i get the sticks and such out of it? or is there something I need to be concerned about in soil derived/enriched by composting? I know my Grape vine outside was (it's now winter) growing great in that stuff! lol

I'll buy new stuff if I need to. but I have a huge bag of that and a huge bag of super fine sand that I'm hoping I can make more use of. any suggestions are appreciated!
All hail the great Salamander!
