|whiptail||Thanks exv152 I increased the co2 and things are starting to look better now. Hopefully that will do it.|

|monty67||Really like the way Eco Complete works, hated the way it really did nothing for my tank and actually seemed to set it back.|

Snails are not the problem, I have some, but not many. There are 15 tetras and 3 bristlenose. The tank was running about 10 years before I changed the substrate. That was about 4 months ago now. I am going to try turning the co2 up as exv152 suggested. I have a drop checker but I could never get it to read correctly. I think it might be all the wood. Anyway I'll let you know if it works.
Thanks for the help.

|exv152||Aside from low nutrients, pinholes are also caused by co2 deficiencies, or snails.|

|Green_Flash||I purchased aquasoil for the 1st time 3 months ago and will never use another substrate.|

|whiptail||Yes they are pin holes. I have tried adding Flourish Potassium with my regular doseing. As you can see it didn't make any difference. Here is a better pic of them.|

Yes I dose. I tryed increasing the dose, just got more algae so I cut back. Hair grass seems to do fine.
Sorry for the delay, something came up I had to leave town for awhile.

|whiptail||I changed from plain gravel to Eco-Complete in my 75gal about 3months ago. The plants still do not grow like they did with plain gravel and one bag of florite. The pics show what the plants look like. It seems like they are lacking in something, but I haven't been able to figure out what.|

Could be the MTS, depending upon what's in it. Could be you making too many changes over a short period of time without allowing anything to settle down.
Tough to say either way.

Really depends what your setup and goal is, but for overall ease of use, plant growth, flexibilty (low to high light) that allows some rearranging Aquasoil is to me the best choice. I've done setups with AS, Eco and soil and you are very limited with a soil setup in terms of scaping, light intensity, etc.
Aquasoil-based setups could go 6 months without adding anything and still get very good growth, but I would add K since this seems to run low. As long as you do regular water changes and do a medium EI-based dosing routine I have found testing unncessary unless your having serious issues. Regular water changes are the key along with a replenishing ferts on a regular basis.
