What to Do? Suggestions Wanted!

I am debating what substrate I should use for a 2.5g shrimp setup... I wanted to do some MTS but its getting to cold for the soil to wet/dry cycle a few times. I'm thinking about using Eco-complete but never used it. Or... since its a small tank maybe ordering a small bag of Amazonia?
Please help me decide what to do, cause I can't make up my mind and its driving me crazy! Thanks

Since you only have 2.5 gallon tank...you can try the Fluval Shrimp Stratum..

With that small of a tank I would order some Amazonia. I would choose it over eco complete any day. Also if you wanted you could try the up aqua shrimp sand.

Think I might try fluval stratum just heard that once it is in, you can't really move things around at all? So kind of scares me...
