Anyone use Tetra Complete substrate?

Would like to know how much time it lasts before having to add fertilizers?

it does not contain macros so you will have to add them from day 1.

if it's the one that looks like guinea pig/rabbit food pellets, i used it many years ago. capped it with blasting sand. seemed to disintegrate within a month or two. made of peat and micros so you have to dose macros as dzega pointed out.
