Well another question, can Flora Base be put over Eco-complete as a Cap?

It says on the Bag to not " Cap " it with anything but can it cap Eco-complete?

Plus says to change it every 6 months, right not going to be doing that.

This is by Red Sea and called Flora Base.

So a go or no go, just want to use it for it's color, also there is a layer of Fluorite already under the Eco.

Thanks all.

Why do you want to cap your existing substrate?

If it's a nutrient issue, just use root tabs. Capping won't really do anything for you other than change the look of things.

Then you'll be fine adding something different on top. Just know that there's a possibility they'll end up getting mixed.

Just add things really slowly to make sure you don't disturb anything. Do a water change once you're finished.
