Eco-Complete

Hey! Do you know any stores that sell Eco-Complete? I can't seem to find it in my area.

I was looking when Iwas setting up, but never found any.
You might want to check out Fishtown USA on Rte 17 in Ramsey. The owner could probably order it for you.

The easiest thing I can find is fluorite. Do you think a nice foreground of dwarf hairgrass will work in this substrate?

Yea, flourite was the the easiest thing for me to find as well.
Truth is, I've got microsword in the foreground, and I like the green against the red & black. I think the red would have been a bit much IMO.
However I'm not having much luck with it due to algae. Could be my tank isn't mature enough.

Absolutely Fish has them (at least they did last weekend when I bought a bag) and Sharks Aquarium down on Rt 22 usually has them as well.

You can also try Reef Encounter in South Hackensack. They have Eco-Complete and Flourite all the time. They should be cheaper than the other stores mentioned as well.

I just picked up some eco-complete at Absolutely Fish...it was expensive, but I think its worth it. I also picked up some fast growing stem plants while I was there for my new 20 long tank. Spent a lot of money today!
