AS is expensive. You need alot of it to make it deep enough to plant in. By cutting it 50/50 with Eco its saves money and makes it easier to plant. As far as from a growing point of view, I still feel its better. I dont have a scientific explanation as to why, but most plants do better in my mix than in straight AS. Thats proof enough for me. I also ammend my Eco with a bit of clay so maybe thats why, IDK? Another reason is that AS tends to be dusty when you pull anything. The Eco traps alot of this and the fines eventually make it to the bottom with the bigger stuff on top. I also like the mix look rather than all plain, uniform substrate.

Haha, I AM a teen. Im 17. With 20 years experience.....boys JK, I guess it goes to show that this is a hobby of addiction and for all ages Waaaaay back in the 90s.....young men....I was cutting frags from acroporas and splitting zoos and mushrooms. It took me a long time to find what I really like. But even so, you guys are AMAZING tank keepers and im jealous of your generation. The acessability to these thing is 1000 fold to what my generation had.

Oh no, the old head is off on another rant!

I remember when I started my first planted tank when I was 10, about 20 years ago. The under gravel filter with carbon inserts on the output of where the air bubbles came out were like the pinnacle of aquarium tech! I cant even remember any HOB filters tat were available then. Maybe a penguin, man those filter inserts. What a rip off!

Got a side shoot of that mystery plant, Chad? It looks pretty similar to Ammania senegalensis

Its in the back with no chance of a side shot. I will trim it tonight and pull it out to get a better full plant pic. It only turns Orange at the very top. Otherwise it has huge green leaves the rest of the way down.
