amazing beats the plain old gravel I once had any day. plants actually root very easily. along with co2 your plant will grow beautifully! definitely worth the price. eco-complete is able to retain and release nutrients to plants when needed. (Posted on 07/07/2014)
amazing plant growth Review by patrick

amazing! i used this in my medium sized tank after much hesitation (the price), however i have heard so many good things so i gave it a go. i was rewarded with amazing plant growth, i added a DIY co2 system and high light and my plants went crazy. the only down fall is that I'm not sure the nutrients will last long in the substrate as its inert.

Superior Planted Substrate Review by Darren Knaggs

I first became aware of Eco Complete having seen a tank with really awesome, lush and healthy plants that was using only this substrate and no CO2 only adding liquid fertilizer.It was truly awe inspiring and i had to try it.I used it in my 100L tank and achieved great results.It is a little expensive and I needed 2 bags for my 100L but the results make it all worth it and it lasts forever and does not break down.I recently bought a new Fluval 200L tank and as such needed to buy 2 more bags to add to what i already had.I bought them from Warehouse Aquatics because it was a great price.

Firstly I would like to thank Warehouse aquatics, My delivery's have always arrived the day after ordering. I had a recent problem with the courier damaging goods and they sent my order out again and even the one item that was out of stock arrived 2 days later on a saturday... excellent.

This is the first time I have bothered with a specific planting medium, I have a big tank that I used compost in but it was long process of cleaning and drying out before it all went in so I decided on my small 50L tank to give this "rather expensive" plant substrate ago. One bag gives 2 inches roughly so just enough for a 2ft tank. After a few days my plants have taken off! I cant say what the long term growth will be like but atm I am quite pleased!, I would hate to think of the cost to plant a big tank but for a small tank its worth pushing the budget to make it a lot easier to grow plants! I have ordered seachem (NPK) N-500ml P-500ml and K-500ml to add as a regular Macro fertilizer along with some micro ferts. I was pleasantly surprised to get a 10% discount for ordering 3+ seachem products as well :) (Posted on 25/06/2013)
