Eco-Complete & Crushed Coral

The label on Eco-Complete says not to use in conjunction w/ dilomite, crushed corals, etc. Problem is: I'm currently using crushed corals to raise my PH & KH ..... Has anyone used CC w/ Eco-Complete before?

I wouldnt' mix the'll look crappy. put the crushed coral in a bag, in your filter.

i think the reason is that fresh eco complete will add some buffering to the water until you do a few water changes to thin it out. adding crushed coral would push you beyond what your trying to adjust it to, which could be bad.

Agreed - mixing would not be too pretty. The CC are in a separate media container in my filter .... I have been having the darnest time trying to up my ph (uping ph thread).
