Although pre-washed, Flourite™ should be rinsed before use to remove residual dust. Filling tank slowly and dispersing water so that the Flourite™ bed is not disturbed can also minimize dust. Slight initial cloudiness is normal and will clear rapidly (2–12 hours). Use of a Water Clarifier will aid in water clearing. This bag is sufficient for about a 2" deep bed in a typical 10-gallon tank.
Determining how much substrate to buy for your new aquarium depends on the size and shape of your tank, as well as the depth of the substrate bed you wish to achieve. Another factor is the type of aquascaping structure you're planning.
Refugiums, small aquariums that either sit next to or hang onto an existing saltwater or reef aquarium, are used by a growing number of aquarists to continually cycle water into and out of the existing tank.
