I have been keeping aquariums for a few years now and wanted to get into aquascaping. The main problem I have been running into while researching, is not being able to find a soil that doesn't lower the ph, and has good minerals.

Most soils don't lower PH that much, and even if it did, most fish can adapt to a wide range of PH levels, and so do most Neocardinia shrimp.

Ok thank you. Also I got a 75 gallon hexagon aqaurium and I'm wondering how much soil I would need to have around 1in to 1.5in of soil

Well... for a planted tank, the 1 lb per gallon rule works pretty well. I used around 1.5 pound per gallon in my tank, and honestly wish I had a little bit more.

Wow I'm probably going to do the 1 lb per gallon and see how it looks then maybe change it if I don't like it.
