This stuff has been a real pain ever since the beginning, and now I'm just completely sick of it! It's messy as hell, ugly (brown) and it doesn't hold plants down at all. It's too soft and they just float back up out of it all the time!! I've had so much hell with trying to keep plants in the substrate and I'm sick of it.
I use Eco-Complete in my other tank and I love it! I wish I would have used it in this other tank. Ah well, at least I know better now.
