Can you read the ingredients and post them? I could not find it on line.
Several references to it, all bad. Most of these were from people growing vegetables.

Compare the ingredients side-by-side with a bag of the Miracle Gro product that many people have used. If the ingredients are the same, it might work.

Otherwise, you can be the scientist and tell us: Does it work?

I would not want big chunky pieces of bark or wood, and not too high a level of the various manures. If it is high enough in fertilizers (even from organic sources) that they tell you the levels on the bag it might be too much for the aquarium.
