Eco-Complete Plant Substrate Black Coarse-Grade 20 lbs
I used this substrate in my first tank, plants were thriving, I bought a bigger tank, and I'm using it again, with great results. Plants are healthy and growing very fast. Pricy, but worth the money.

Easiest substrate to add - no hassle
I have an established 55g that had gravel which I was replacing with eco-complete. Everyone said I should have 2lbs per gallon but I bought 80lbs and it's 2 inches deep which is plenty! I removed the gravel the day before, let the yuck settle, and siphoned it out. Just as the instructions suggest, I drained each bag before dumping it straight into the aquarium. It settled within 30 minutes and over the next week I checked my parameters daily - no significant change. I am very happy with this product and recommend spending the extra amount for this pre-treated substrate compared to others for planted aquariums.
