    The thing is that I can get 3 20lb bags of Eco-complete from my lfs for £59.97 but to get the equivalent in AS would be £83.97 on the old c/c. So I suppose my Q is, Is the AS really worth the extra £££ in the long run or am I just being a
    *Tight Git*? :lol:

    Never used the Eco complete but I'd never look further than AS after using it on two tanks. IMHO, it's the best substrate, period.

    Yup go for the AS! I used aquaclay before this, gravel,and tetracomplete stuff and none of them even compare so far.

    Me been awkward (as usual) chose to go with eco-complete for my planted shrimp tank. ;) It's cheaper and much nicer looking than AS, and odds are the difference in plant growth between the 2 is smaller than the difference in price. :lol: But then I have rampant plant growth in my DIY plant substrate as well. :D

    I'd say go with the one you like best, then you only have yourself to blame. :p

    After a lot of deliberation I've decided to go down the AS route and to 'hell' with my bank account :lol: :lol:
    Now all I've got to decide is whether to get 3 or 4 bags.... hmmmmmmm what to do, what to do :?

    Get 5, as usually you always wish you had bought one more bag than you thought you would need. :lol:

    I got my 2 bags of AS this morning,the old c/c would only allow me to get 2 :twisted: , and I've gotta say that I dont think i'll need much more of it - maybe another 3ltr bag-. After levelling it out it's 2-3" at the front and at least 6" at the back.

    P.s. Gotta say a big thankyou to Richard from AE for his e-mail suggesting that I should get the regular amazonia instead of amazonia II because of the dust issues. So Richard, Thankyou and *YOU DA MAN* 8) 8)
