Carpeting with Flourite v Eco-Complete

I was wondering which substrate has a better experience with carpeting glosso or HC. Right now I'm really having trouble keeping my HC rooted in EC, and it's not doing too well. I remember that Flourite was a lot finer. EC is just too large to get those tiny roots in for me. How does glosso compare in terms of planting? And what's the round, brown substrate I see a lot of planters use?

Can't speak to the other questions, but this is probably ADA Aquasoil.
