    I've seen three schools of thought on cleaning a substrate composed of Eco Complete. Which do you subscribe to? Any tips?

    Option 1) Clean it like you'd clean any type of gravel

    Option 2) Keep the gravel vacuum about 2 inches above the Eco Complete so it doesn't suck out the good stuff

    Option 3) As long as you have enough plants, you don't need to clean Eco Complete

    I vacuum mine like any other substrate.
