I have used ECO and done DSM with HC in a 75G. See my 75G journal to see day by day growth in my sig. I misted daily with 20PPM nitrate water from another mature tank. It worked fine and HC did great after I filled but I used pressurized CO2 after filling and cranked up the PPM to get HC surive the switch to water from air.
