Eco-Complete Plant Substrate Black Coarse-Grade 20 lbs
Eco-complete is a must for any planted aquarium. I've used it for years and will continue to use it! I always see beneficial results with Eco-complete.

I love Eco-complete substrate from Carib Sea!
This is the second time I have used this to plant an aquarium. It really makes the aquarium cycle complete for the bacteria, fish, and plants. That means less work for the hobbyist!
The results are beautiful, lush plants, and no need to add plant food or minerals for the plants; so, I have never had any algae problems!
I got the black, it looks great & shows off the colors of the fish & plants.
On set-up, the water in the aquarium clears quickly because this substrate settles quickly.
It is worth every cent, and Drs Foster & Smith have the best price on this that I have found.

This substrate was amazing. I have a new 75 gallon planted aquarium, I ordered a pack of plants on line. They immediately started to flourish, new roots were incredibly fast. This was great. I definitely recommend this product for a planted aquarium.

Valcano red substrate
I purchased the valcano red substrate, & didn't think I'd like the color. After, I recieved to product, & applied it into an aquarium. It looks beautiful, I love this, plants grow great/rapidly/improve, & the color, versus black doesn't matter. It looks awesome, & I'd recomend adding other substrate, like sand, & other colors to the mix. Only to spice your aquarium up to your likings! Either black/red substrate looks beautious! Be sure to rinse a few times, & until the cloudiness comes out in a strainer/or bucket. Of course w/water (the hose outside) before adding into your setup!!!!!
