Here's that tank the next day. After I moved it more or less where it was going to be. Since it is on wheels, moving it.... easy.

Laterite and Organic topsoil in the bottom covered with gravel.....according to the video.
I do think, Serrecko, I would have had put down 3-4" of top soil, tho. You want the roots in the topsoil, not in the gravel. With just enough gravel( or sand) to keep to top soil down. It doesn't look deep enough for plants to me but I've been wrong a couple times. LOL

Haven't checked this in a while, sorry about that.
I used about 2 inches of dirt in the bottom of the first tank, then capped it with about the same amount of pea gravel. The second tank is more or less an experiment. Half is dirt and the other half is Eco-Complete.
Both of the tanks are up and running now, here is a link to the final video of them both.
