Yes I have, and it didn't work well.  The plants never were able to make it
through the peat pots, which never seemed to disintegrate properly in the
tank.  Of course, I've never had great results with them in the garden for
similar reasons.  Maybe there are some brands that are better than others,
but I wouldn't try it again.  

I'm not sure what the big deal is about planting plants directly in the
substrate anyway.
