I'll tell you my experience with eco-complete.Granted I'm pretty new to planted tanks,and I'm staying low-tech.the stuff seems awfully dirty out of the bag,and lots of fine dust everywhere at first.I planted a bunch of italian vals,they grew like gangbusters for a month or so,then stopped and only began growing again when I inserted some o-cote caps.
Both tanks I used it in,had detritus worms crawling up the sides of the tanks within days of setting up.I think that's what they mean by "root enhancing symbionts".
both tanks I used it in,I'm fighting BGA in.I think I'm going to try the BDS when TSC opens here,or else flourite.
Both tanks with ECO in them were set up last spring.my other 2 tanks with inert gravel,are doing fine.though all I have in them is hornwort,anacharis and java fern.
MTS? no,I just need one more tank...
