I am setting up a 26 gal bow front and will have 2 AH Supply 55w 53K PC and co2. I want the color to be black so I will either just use the eco complete by it self or florite with a layer of black gravle on top. So what do yall think??? Also how does the size of florite compair to eco complete??

Thanks

If you want black then go with the Eco complete. The flourite will eventually get mixed in with the gravel and you'll have a hodge podge.

I second Marcel's advice. Just use the Eco-Complete.

So the Eco-Complete is as good as Florite?? Also is the granule size of Eco-complete small?? I would like to try some Glossostigma (sp)and I have read that it like a fine substrate. So how many bags for this tank....its the size of a 20 tall but bows a little in the front...2 bags??


Thanks for the help!
