Sounds a little like Flourite.

I used it in my juwel 240 litre aquarium. The plants certainly grew well. I mixed it wih 23 mm pea gravel. The only thing I didnt like was that it is whiteish and I prefer dark substrate.

Even so its not too expensive and is good for planted aquaria.

On my newr aquariums I have used pea gravel over JBL aquabasis

I heard that deponit is basically soil, people even found twigs in it?

The description mentions it lowers PH. Flourite has no effect on PH. Eco-Complete does.

What is the texture of AquaGrit? Shards? Rounded? Small?
