GEX is a common alternative to ADA soil, most people would say it is cheaper, but if you really do your math, its a more expensive alternative. But effectiveness wise, its very comparable to ADA. I have GEX in my 1 ft cube, growing Blyxa and nana,without CO2. the first 2 weeks had a hair algae attack, almost gave up the tank, then I went away for a 2 week trip and come back to a surprisingly clear tank, all algaes are gone and even the glass look sparkling clean.

Compare to ADA, it definitely give a clearer water faster.
