Very nice. I think your plants look great. When are you starting the switch over? Looking at those plants I'm not sure you even need the eco-complete. Or maybe you do what I do? Take a photo immediately after planting before the plants start looking ragged??

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

wow that's a lovley tank :)
the plants look great.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

There is no substrate in the tank in this picture this is just plain river rock gravel. And the plants the little ones you see in the gravel they are real plants the rest of them (large) is the background picture. I thought it looked a little busy. So after I posted this picture I switched the background with one with rocks on it insead of the plants will post it later, and show you how the substrate is looking after the first bag has been added.
