90% Garden Soil
10% Laterite

The method is, laterite comes in small chunks. Spread the laterite evenly all over the tank. After that place the garden soil over it and spread it all over. The total thickness should around 2 inches. Now place construction sand all over. Ensure that no part of garden soil remains uncovered. Basically sand is given to avoid clouding of water.

Thanks very much

What about the water conditions and pH? Is it OK to keep tetras and rainbows in the aquarium?

I never tested those.
Will prefer tetras over rainbow
