Eco-Complete dry?

What will I lose if I let my Eco complete dry out before I use it? Any down side to this? This is new in the bag. Thanks!

Nothing, I don't think. The packages say Eco_Complete "contains live water-purifying bacteria."

I have yet to see any evidence of said bacteria, and I had to put my new eco-compete tank through a full fishless cycle.

Thank you.

I'm not worried much about the bacteria. My tank has been running for a while. The filters and plants should have as much bacteria as the substrate.
