I currently have eco complete in my 55 gallon tank. I've kinda tried growing micro sword grass in it. It doesn't grip very good and every time I do water changes, it's floating all in the tank. I wanted to add sand over the top layer to give the grass finer subtract to grab to. After reading reviews, I saw a lot of good things about black diamond. Cheap and things grow good. Only downfall is rinsing the oily film .
My brother used to have bearded dragons in a small 10 gallons tank. after around 3 months, he didn't enjoy the responsibility of cleaning the tank. We donated them to petco.
So with a spare tank laying around, heater, light and air pump, I decided to test out the sand.
So far I have rinsed the sand, let it sit and rinse again. I did have the oily film on mine.
I poured it into the tank, very cloudy so far so I'm wait for it to settle.
Also it's not very good for building up ground. I tried to make a little cave but the sand it very heavy and silky. Maybe mixed with eco complete, it will do better.
