Great! It's always fun to follow progress with pics.
I see where you already posted your "before" tank shot in another thread.
It's a very nice looking tank

I started this process yesterday, I rinsed out the eco-complete it didnt take to long and I put 1 bag into the tank by means of a tupperware bowl with lid I would then take the eco to the bottom of the tank open up the bowl and drop the substrate it worked awesome my tank didnt change color or anything although that did take some time. I didnt have plexi glass so I used an old tank divider that I had.
I can hardly wait to do the next bag it is going to look great.

Yes I did post a picture of before and I really didnt like how the background looked so I switched it around so it is rocks on the back now, not sure I really like it either after I took another picture. I also took a picture of the 1st bag in the tank will keep the process going and take pics to post when done.
