Curious as to why people are using Eco-Complete as a topper rather than gravel or sand? I have it in one of my tanks (no other substrate), and it is very gravel like. Had quite a nutrient spike for a few weeks too (lots of algae). After about 6 weeks tank is now pretty good.

I would think soil + EcoComplete would be overkill on the ferts. But, I have seen people here use Miracle Grow potting soil as a substrate with success too! They did have a nutrient spike for a while though. I guess what I'm saying is, if you get a lot of algae at first, don't be too concerned. The EcoComplete by itself is quite rich.
