    Greetings All. I am new here and have been researching substrate for my future planted aquarium. It is a 125g and will be filled with tropical fish such as cardinals, rams, platy's etc. I would really like a white sand substrate but the Planted substrate I have found so far (Eco complete...
  2. Low Tech Forum
    I started a 32 gallon planted tank recently. I've had substrate and water in it for 2 weeks now. Substrate: organic soil capped with eco complete. I planted it about a week ago and the water is just as cloudy as day 1. I poured the water from the eco complete bag out before adding to tank. There...
  3. Lighting
    I was wondering if a 30 inch stingray would provide the light necessary to grow DHG. I have 1 inch of ecocomplete as a base and will get maybe 2-2.5 inches of some regular sand on top of it. Also will be dosing with API liquid co2. Despite current peramiters, would you guys say im in the clear...

    So, I was looking for fry control for my platys the other night, and totally scrapped my idea of a betta sorority in a community tank, which was looking more and more like a recipe for disaster, when I discovered Bolivian Rams. Beautiful, hardy, peaceful, and personable, these fish will be...

    I have been looking into using osmocote as a fertilizer in my tank, since I will be moving the whole setup back to my dorm after break (soil would get mixed up and it would be a mess). Could I use osmocote with eco-complete, or should I just skip the ferts?

    Hello everyone! I have a 75 gallon tank that I want to convert into a planted tank. Based on the general rule of 2 lbs of gravel/substrate per gallon of water, I'm aiming for about 80 lbs of substrate. I currently have about 60 lbs of white gravel in the tank. What I would like to do is add...

  10. Substrate
    I'm about to start my first planted tank and have a few questions. I'm going to use Eco complete as my substrate. 1) should I rinse before putting tank or can I put in straight from the bag? 2) am I supposed to add a top layer of sand or gravel or can I just use as is? Thanks!

Going to do a fairly natural heavily planted Holland style tank...

    I mixed in 20 pounds of Eco Complete to my existing gravel yesterday. It already had some Eco from a couple of years ago. I'm looking to add some additional fish and cory cats would be a good choice with the fish already in the tank, but is the eco too sharp? Hopefully, I'll get some ground...
