i have it in all my tanks, just make sure that you put some root tabs by your rooted plants and it should be good.

You should use dirt so you dont have to do any dosing

The last 5 posts by you have been the same "just use dirt" posts. Even in threads not pertaining to substrate. Please stop.

First of all, I have only ever had three posts regarding using dirt on other people's threads. They are: "Low tech, going dirt"(OBVIOUSLY pertains to substrate), "Low tech 10g"(Had info pertaining substrate and dirt is awesome for low tech) and "eco complete"(ONCE AGAIN pertains to substrate)

Can you please not go and look through my posts on my profile just to wander onto a thread I'm on and take a jab at me for no particular reason other than recommending dirt in threads that definitely PERTAIN to substrate. Please stop.

(Sorry whiteblaze 27 for this thread getting hijacked this was really not necessary)

I've got eco complete in both of my tanks, and it's working out well. The only drawback to it is trying to get very small roots or shoots to stay put. For plants like crypts, hygro, etc.. eco complete is just fine.

Had unexplained GH spikes in a nano with EC, losing an entire colony of Yellow shrimp in the process. Others have posted that it's a known issue.

Getting back to the hobby and up to speed.
