| || | BEST PLANTED Aquarium Substrate EVER!!!
Ok, so I just a few weeks ago, I got my Eco-Complete substrate in the mail from Petco... I did not hesitate to put it in my 10 gallon tank.. and boy am I happy I didnt! My Amazon sword has FIVE, yes FIVE new leaves!!! Also, the newly planted Anubias has been growing like crazy!! My little Anubias is growing another leaf, and it's only been 2 weeks! As for my other plants... At petco, I saw this strange grass for aquariums.. Letting my inner little kid run free, I of course bought it and put it in my tank. The time I had it, it slowly started to fade and disappear into my filter... Then I put this substrate in, and the plant has stop withering, and has bounced back to life.. Hopefully now it will grow. (I cant tell if it's growing really.. Im not gonna sit there and count out 50 blades of grass 1 day, then 51 the next.. that'd be silly.) As for my Narrow Leaf Java Fern.. Wow do I feel like an idiot owning it.. I have no idea what it wants, or needs. I have Low-Medium light in this tank, with good substrate but am unsure of if it will grow, or die.. or just plain survive. Currently it has many dark spots all over the leaves (maybe from handling it) and maybe this substrate will aid in it's recovery with some new, healthy leaves.
