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?

Definitely use root tabs. If there really is any nutrients with new Eco, it's minimal. You'll definitely need root tabs.

Would it hurt to put down some osmocote plus on the botttom of the tank then add the eco complete rather than the eco complete first and making DIY root tabs using gelatin capsules?

No, but be careful as osmocote plus is very strong so you don't need that much. I move a dirted tank to and from school with me though, its not that bad tbh.
