Eco Complete on non planted tank

I am setting up a 30 gallon tank for my kids, it won't be planted at first, maybe this summer when they are all out of school. I was going to use eco complete since I already have several bags, would that be OK to use since it won't be planted until later or not at all?


Thanks for your help

It won't make a difference, you're good to go! Eco complete is marketed as a plant substrate, but isn't an active substrate. It won't contaminate the water or act any differently if you wait to plant or don't plant. It's just expensive, but if you already have it then may as well use it
