Has tropica plant soil substrate changed lately? I used it 3 years since and it was mostly even 2 or 3mm spheres which weren't hard.
Upgraded my tank, bought what I thought was the same stuff, it's strange and tan coloured fine like sand. So as I was on tank upgrade day, I decided to use it on the bottom, and cap it with the old soil. That worked. But thought I would buy some new stuff...checked the packet, it seemed to be brown ... opened it, its brown dust with occasional 2 or 3 mm spheres! This is labelled Tropica substrate. It's very thin and dusty... please, if you know which one is the dark brown spheres, put me out of my misery!!!
