Not sure what to do!

I am in the process of setting up my first planted ten gallon tank. I am not sure what to use as a substrate. Should i use Schultz aquatic soil covered with gravel or should i just purchase a bag of eco complete or flourite. I don't think the cost difference in the end will be much different. Any othe suggestions?

Thanks

Any will work. Flourite can be messy. I would go with the Eco if I were you.

Eco is expensive but since your only putting up a 10 gallon tank, its not so bad. It is definitely worth it (even if you shell it out for a 55 gallon).
