I went ahead and got 2 bags of Eco - Complete just seemed like the overall favorite our of the forums I posted in, but Im also thinking of getting a bag od Onyz sand?? would that be ok?

But the main question is do I put the Eco - Complete on top of the gravel or the gravel ontop of the eco complete?

And if I got the Ony Sand or flurite would I put that on top of Eco - Complete and gravel or should I not even mix all 3?

go with florobase by red sea. a little pricey but worth it. it is very soft and clay like but u can clean it easly.

Go with Flourite, people had great results with 50/50 mix of Flourite and Eco-Complete. IMO put the the Flourite under the Eco-Complete, since Eco has a much better color, and smaller granules..it will be best ontop of Flourite.
