GLAD to see it is working out as planned .....
I'm not a member of that forum, so it would only make sense. Sorry about that, should have probably told you.
Anyways, no problem at all. I'll make sure to arrange the details with Pierré.
I'm terribly excited to up my planting game
How deep does our substrate have to be to keep the osmocote from leeching into the water column?
No problem, some of us are on both TASA and APSA.

I know I might have totally missed the boat this time, but does anyone have 500g-1kg they want to sell to me in Pretoria/Centurion?
So am I!
Not THAT deep, I had used it without problems in a substrate no more than 2-3cm before. It really depends on how you add it to a substrate (I will be placing it in gel capsules), I'd say a 1cm layer above it should't cause you any problems.
I have about 4cm of pfs / gravel mix.
@Snyper564: The full 25kg bag has been accounted for and reserved. You may have to contact @Pierré Schoonraad if he has any left.
It's my first serious planting project
Will add a bit more sand to be sure. Looking at capsules as well
Do you have any left or know someone that is prepared to share? I am in S.bosch.

Just remember - OC+ has one maybe more but one noticeable downside .... you will have some prills that leave empty shells behind and they require manual removal once spend. So if you are a little OCD -- do realise this will get you, esp if you think you have removed them all and somebody comments what is that orange ball in the tank.
Would the shells not eventually decompose?
Alrighty. Solution is to choke the bottom with plants
Apparently one tab per 25cm x 25cm is enough?
Unfortunately not, sorry @GroenVissie. @Pierré Schoonraad: Do you have any left for this guy?
@Hendre: I was just reading about you asking on the substrate - while I was planting the vallis, I realised my substrate was too shallow and I had to sweep some to the back so that I could plant the dense roots into it so that the substrate would hold the vallis and not "blow" away with the pump's strong water flow. So if anything less than 4cm, you may have a problem planting some of the crypts as they have big root systems.
I'll put it in deeper parts then
Shouldn't trimming the roots a little help get them re-established quickly as well?
I'm not sure really - I find trimming the buce, and anubias has no effects on them but still even if you cut off the excess rhizome of the crypts, you will still have a big root system if the plant is big.
More sand it is then. Will wash more tomorrow
@GroenVissie you can pm me on how much you need.
