OK - two bags of Eco-Complete Added

My substrate has always been thin, and since it was a few years old I decided to give it a boost by adding some nutrient rich substrate.

My tank is heavily planted, so I thought adding the Eco-complete would be a pain in the arse...but...it wasnt!

The trick is to dump in the substrate slowly. I got a plastic juice pitcher and filled it 3/4 of the way with substrate. I think submerged it and literally poured the substrate slowly across the tank. If you go slow the granules with bounce of leaves and work its way to the bottom of the tank. If you go too fast you will burry leaves or plants.

So....my substrate is now about 3.5 inches deep - which is a huge bonus as I always struggled to keep my plants anchored.

Plus - the new black substrate looks cool
