Eco Lab's Gravel Substrate Cleaner?

Hey everyone, I just wanted to know if anyone has actually used it before because my LFS have just got some in and I'm interested in trying it. I asked the guy that runs it and he said he's not used as of yet. It says it's reef safe but I've got a sand shifting starfish and a few hermits/cleaner shrimp and I'm a bit unsure weather to use it or not

I've used things by Eco Lab before like special blend and nite out 2 which are both really good, although special blend is really smelly.

If anyone has used it could you please let me know what its like?

Thanks

GS

IMO I would not use it. One, your clean up crew will not be able to navigate through it and two, it will trap fish waste and food causing high nitrates. JMO.

trap waste?

How does it trap waste? Is helps disolve organics so your protien skimmer can remove it.
