No, no. It's just the aquasoil, it makes HC grow like no other.

Yeah, I have grown HC in Eco Complete and there is no comparison. Plus, I am really only dosing Potassium (Brighty K) right now.

Really nice setup co2. Hey I just got the same size ADA tank and I was thinking of getting the same pendant you have but I just saw Drfoster&Smith has the 150 on sale for $212.14. You think I should go for that or would 150 be overkill? Even if I raise the light higher?

I've heard that people have used the ADA 150W "Solar I" over the 60cm. I think it would definitely be ok, but you would probably want to use fast growing plants. The D&S deal is great, I would go with that. The benefit would be getting a great pendant with an electronic ballast for a good price, -and- being able to use the ADA bulb. You would probably want to mount the pendant at least a foot above the tank. The main thing would be to be careful with the light period, start at like 6 hours a day and be careful to work your way up.

I got lazy and let the Rotalas grow out of control. I finally gave the tank it's first big haircut this weekend. HC would be more filled in around the wood if it wasn't getting shaded. I also didn't bother prepping for this picture, I am going to put a black background on the wall behind it soon. Here are my my cheap "lily pipes" and diffuser that I use while I'm bleaching the ADA stuff:

The HC looks great, and you don't have to make excuses, we can all tell how cool it is/will be.

Thanks everyone. I have "grown" HC in Eco Complete before, and honestly, there is no comparison. It is a completely different ballgame with Aqua Soil.
