    Hope i'm posting this in the right area, but I wanted to start a dirted tank in one of my 10 gallons just to try it out before I do it in one of my main tanks.

    My question is, I picked up Organic potting soil, but i'm still a little scared to use it.
    Can I be sure that its safe just because it says Organic? I don't want to put something in the tank thats gonna end up killing my shrimp (in this tank) or later on fish in another.

    Best thing to do is try it with just plants for a month and see what your tests say. It may or may not release ammonia. That's how I would find out. Closest I ever used was pond mud. I don't recommend that unless you cover it with something.
