Default Alternative to ADA Aquasoil Amazonia

I am possibly downsizing my 55 gallon planted tank with pressurized CO2 to a 20 gallon in the hopes of growing a better carpet of dwarf baby tears. I am currently using CaribSea Eco Complete but I have read that ADA Aquasoil Amazonia is better for carpet plants. However, there seems to be a shortage of this substrate so what would be a better alternative? I have looked into Seachem Onyx or ADA Aquasoil Amazona II.

Welcome to APC!

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 is an alternative to ADA Aquasoil. I have it in my 30 gallon tank, for 6 months now. I'm still not sure it is as fertile as Aquasoil, but it looks good, has a good price, and will grow plants.
