    As the title says... which one?

    It's a 100gal tank, so a big expense and I want to get it right.

    I know Aquasoil is better... but I don't want to deal with the ammonia issue. I'm moving house in a couple of weeks (for the last time hopefully!) and I have a 100gal fully stocked with fish. They'll be living in my old rio 180 while the big tank is moved/rescaped, which isn't ideal, so I want them in there for as little time as possible.

    There's a big price difference between the two substrates...

    What do people think?

    Oliver Knott! I went with eco complete in my nano and it was good. Just swapped to Oliver Knott - amazing! I can't wait to upgrade my big tank! :D

    I've bought the Oliver Knott stuff... cost me a fortune, but I see it as an investment :)

    thanks for your help

    lol I told OH how much the soil cost... he's not happy. But he's being alright with it. He says next time tell him I want soil and he'll dig me some out of the garden.

    I told him when he was drunk, to soften the blow!
