1. When using EcoComplete, do you still need to add liquid ferts for water column feeding plants or will this add nurients to the water column? 2. How frequently does this need to be replaced? 3. Should you rinse this before adding to a tank?

Asked by: jennifer37
I have used this in 6 tanks. Fresh start up tanks. I never rinse. You will be cloudy for a day or two, but it will clear up. If you rinse it you will wash out all the beneficial goods of this substrate. If adding to a tank that already is established, yes rinse. After 2 years, depending on your plant load you will have to start to use root tabs . Your plants should let you know. 4 of my tanks have had this in for 5 years.

How will this affect the pH and water hardness in the aquarium

Asked by: Ninabelle
The labeling on the bag itself said that it might increase the pH levels, so they said not to use it for sensitive fish species.
