Aquarium Gravels Specific to Planted Aquariums

Post by Pathfinder on Sat Mar 08, 2014 8:50 pm

I'm interested in knowing everyone's recommendations for aquarium substrate gravel, specific for planted aquariums. I'm doing preliminary research for my 55 gallon, which will be redone into a planted tank sometime later this year. I am interested in dark (as close to black as possible) gravels that are marketed for planted tanks.

I've been leaning towards CaribSea "Eco-complete Planted Black" but I want your input!

I use eco complete with high success. It is the perfect grain size for plant roots. Does not compact and nice color.
