Flourite Original 7kg/15.4 lbs
wonderful but dusty.
i've purchased the black sand and red variations of this product and both are outstanding. each looks beautiful in the tank (especially the red, the color variations are stunning). i made the mistake of not rinsing the black sand (first purchase) and it created a huge cloud in my tank. i had to empty it and rinse it for about an hour for it to run clear. the second time around with the red, i rinsed it for about an hour prior and i had no problems. after placing in the tank, there will be a bit of dust left over but it will settle or your filter will take it out (it shouldn't be enough to mess anything up).
all in all, my plants do fabulously in this substrate and it's all i will use from now on for planted tanks. don't worry about washing away minerals when you rinse, each grain/gravel bit is quite nutrient dense. all of the rinsing was well worth it.

Plants are doing amazing with this substrate! I recommend rinsing it again since it can be a little dusty. Includes a variety of minerals to impact nutrients to your plants! I would definitely buy this again!

this flourite substrate is great for planted tanks . my plants are doing very well in it . the only con is that the substrate will leave alot of residue all over your tank even after its been rinsed .
