Dilution rate is different and the Complete includes an ammonia detoxifier so I don't need to use Chloram-X. Beyond that, not a huge difference. RG Complete is easier for me to dose, so that's a plus in my book.

Now I just need a local supplier for Reed's stuff, shipping is expensive from any of my sources and the only place I find it over the counter is a two-hour drive. Each way. :)

I tried to have my LFS order the Complete last week and he was told it was not available. I will have to try next time.

RG Complete is available now! It is 1/3 the concentration of the RotiGrow products, so you will use it up faster which means you won't have to freeze it. Freezing causes clumping of the algae cells. Also as others mentioned, RG Complete has ChlorAm-X added at the proper concentration to control ammonia. It is possible to calculate how much ChlorAm-X to use as it is directly related to the amount of RotiGrow that is fed. I can't wait to try it out.
Given sufficient thrust, pigs will fly just fine.

I have been using it for a few weeks and the biggest difference I guess is that my rotifer buckets dont get dirty as quickly. Thats a big help. Anything to help make maintenance easier is always a plus in my book. I wish they sold it in bigger containers though.
