    When I use kitty litter I mix it 25% litter and 75% soil-if I use peat- I only use a hand full at most dusted on the bottom under the soil
    Kitty litter can be a mess when used 100%-you also need to make sure it is just clay and not any of the perfumed type or with any additives or it will kill the fish-the wal-mart red bag brand is what I used-how it is made from one state to another can vary too so look at what is in it
    Personally I would stick to dirt or potting soil and only add a handful of the clay kitty litter for the iron.

    Lucky....I would love to find a deal like that.....that is my favorite price "Free or cheaper"....Laffs.....sometimes shipping boxes don't have to be water safe......just be safe/careful with them....

    Not sure what 1 means......I would check and make sure they are human food grade safe to be fish safe....this number is in the recycle triangle?

    Great.....make sure and look at the bottom of the boxes for the recycle number you want "2"-this is human grade and food and water safe...3, 6, 7-are not safe due to possible leaching of toxin in the water.
    Look forward to hearing about your new project......

OH also today i found these large polystyrene boxes about 2 foot long and i was thinking i might plant it heavily and use it for my next breeding project and see how the fry grow up in a natural enviroment type tank.
