Anyone using one of these with plants? Your input will be very helpful in my decision. Thanks!
Eco-complete would be more plant friendly. Is clay based product with some micronutrient's that plant's can benefit from.
Tahitian moon sand,is sharp product and would not be what I would choose if bottom dwelling fishes such as loaches,cory's or pleco's were to be placed over it . Also contains no clay,or nutrient's I don't believe.
