    Hi folks,

    I'm about to rescape my 84g tank. I'm going to use eco-complete for the substrate. Why? Well, i have flourite in this tank and don't like it. I have AS in a nano and don't like it either because I always fiddle and find AS a nuisance to work with....plants always unroot, etc... One day, skills and patients permitting maybe again, but not this time.

    I put eco in my daughters 33g and it was and remains very easy to work with and I like the look.

    So, this rescape will use a lot of root feeders. I will add root tabs right away, but thought grinding them up and mixing them in would be a better jump start for the system. Then I though there may be something Easier like Osmocote or something.

    I won't be boiling worm casings or anything like that...too little time for all but the simplest methods. Worst case i'll just add tabs, but thought I'd poll the experts for a fast, easy way to enrich that may be a little more effective short-term than tabs and capsules.

    Thanks,
    AB
