    When seeing up my tank with Eco complete do I need to plant it right away or can I set it up fill it and plant it later?

    Specifically selected and engineered live substrate for freshwater planted aquaria

    Eco‑Complete’s™ secret lies in rich basaltic volcanic soil which contains iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, sulfur plus over 25 other elements to nourish your aquatic plants. Now contains Floraspore™ - These symbionts activate the root-substrate interface to facilitate the uptake of minerals which make for a healthier root and healthier plant. Iron rich Eco‑Complete™ eliminates the need for laterite. No artificial dyes, paints, or chemical coatings. Eco-Complete™ has highly porous spherical grains for optimum diffusion performance and contains live Heterotrophic bacteria to rapidly convert fish waste into natural food for your aquatic plants. It establishes a natural biological balance which makes cycling a new aquarium faster and safer.

    I know this is an old post but I have the same question. Can I put in Eco-complete, dry scape, and plant/flood 3-4 weeks later? Or is it better to plant immediately after putting in the substrate?

    I assume it wouldn't make much of a difference. Areas that flood annually have fertile soil for both emersed and submersed growth. As long as the flooding doesn't cause a major unbalance it should be just fine. Study and copy nature.

    It does not matter how many years you have had Aquariums you never stop learning as there are always new products on the market for the Aquarium trade.

    It should be fine. The microorganisms in the EC probably won't die.
