    I've seen both Eco Complete and Tropica at AquaJardin. If you join their club for £5 you get 10% off purchases, so buying substrate etc might be worth going there? Call to see how many bags of stuff they have in.

    The only time I've been in a Maidenhead Aquatics to ask for planted substrate they never heard of Eco-Complete and suggested that I had maid the name up! The only one I saw was Tetra Plant Complete.

    well thnks guys for the info

    i have got some money saved up because last week i celebrated eid (after fasting for a month)
    and i got a bit of money
    so im taking my dad down to MA later on and well see how we get on

    i know aquajardin is very good ive seen their tropic aplants and products but its about 45 miles away from me and my dad hs been away all week so he doesnt want to travel much...

    if i cant find any nutrient substrate such as tropica
    i will keep my akadama and just pt some root tabs in there as i have some very heavy rootfeeders (v big echinodoruses)
    and put some fine river gravel ontop of that..

    Hi Ark,

    I think it depends Which MA you shop at .... My local stocks Eco complete, Tropica, JBL, FLora base and Colombo!!
    I think most are stocking JBL (which Ive had good results with)

    They should be able to order you in any of the above!
