If you go with the organic soil, what would you cap it with? I like my ecocomplete in my 75 gallon, except that itís a little rough. If youíre going to have loaches or cories, I would personally go with another substrate.

Honestly I would go with ADA Amazonia if you have the money. If your on a budget like me just go with dirt capped with pool filter sand. I would use organic potting soil.
