Is Aquasoil noticeably heavier than Eco Complete? I am wondering about those nice sloped scapes that have some pretty steep hills. I can't get any of my slopes to stay. Shrimp, slight water movement, and fish all seem to destroy the slopes. Eco is pretty light, and I'm wondering if Aquasoil is any different in terms of weight.

Hello, I've used eco-complete and aquasoil. I even had a tank with a 50/50 mix. Aquasoil is round and seems lighter. Eco-complete is not uniform in shape and is somewhat gritty.

I prefer Aquasoil simply because it grows soft water plants rather well

eco is heavier then then aquasoil. the kind i used is a lot softer too. have you used any plastic under the slopes to help hold it in place? like using is as a wall.

If you're talking about plastic strips, yes. Didn't do much.
