|inthepacific||i tried dirting my tank one then i broke it down and did aquasoil. im not sure if it was the dirt or the moss i bought, but i ended up having worms and the sort in my tank. i also had a lot of tannis that never really went away. i also think it works better for larger tanks becasue you have to use both the dirt and the cap and you want the dirt to be deep enough to get a good root system.|

|Tanman19az||Petco was selling Eco complete for cheap...I don't know if they caught on to not charging an additional shipping fee but when I bought them I got free shipping with orders over $49|

Eco complete was going for 39.99 at a LFS by me.
Is there any particular brand I should go for if I was to go this route?

|Blackheart||And I'm assuming this would probably be a lot cheaper than going out and actually buying Aquarium plant substrates? Which can cost like, what 40 dollars a bag at LFS?|

Hardest thing in my view, is placement of plant's.
Don't want to be uprooting them any more than necessary so placement,growth characteristic's are essential .

|DBlauj||Not to bad. I use organic top soil w/ peat moss, then a layer of calcined clay, then I cap it with my gravel. Makes it less messy when planting.|
