What's the secret to planting with eco-complete?
I just finished a 3.5 hour tear down and rebuild of my 10g. Wanted to switch from black sand to eco-complete as well as plant new plants.
I have the eco-complete in, but the issue is that nothing seems to stay down! This has been one of the most frustrating experiences of my life. I'm trying to plant a whole bunch of things super close (corkscrew val, rotundifolia, bacopa caroliana) but every time I try to get my rotundifolia next to the vals, the vals fly right up.
I'm using my curved tweezers and I'm just very disappointed with how this is all happening. The tweezers keep pulling the plants up!
Should I switch to straight tweezers?
Is there some kind of technique I'm missing?
