    Dirt tank

    Hey guys,
    I've been doing planted tanks for a few years now but I'm about to set up my first dirt aquarium. I have an empty 55gal I'm using for this. I bought a large bag of miracle grow organic soil. I plan on using about an inch of this as a base. The plants I am using are coming from an already established 30gal tank which has flourite substrate. I plan on taking all plants and fish out of this tank and leaving the 30 empty for now. I know you aren't suppose to use eco complete as a cap on soil because it will settle too much and suffocate the soil. My question is can I use my already cycled flourite safely, or will it do the same thing?
