Forgot the name of a certain substrate

I saw this bag of substrate at an auction and it was very similar to ecocomplete, packed in "heterotrophic" water, but the granules were very small, almost like sand. I was wondering if anybody knew what the name was and how good it is compared to other substrates and ecocomplete

I am using Acitv-flora in both of my tanks, Great substrate. The black sandish stuff is great for rooting. There are several sized granuals in it, along with what appears to be smooth metalic chunks that seem to rust lol
