Re: Adding 'Flourite' to an established tank

Ideally, the 'Flourite' should be under the gravel. If you can, I would
remove the fish before adding a 5-7cm layer of flourite.

Subject: Adding Flourite to active tank?

Ok, I have an active 55 gallon tank that currently has
a plain gravel substrate.  I picked up two bags of
flourite pretty cheap and I'd like to add it to the current tank.
Besides washing it thoroughly does anyone have suggestions for minimizing
the impact on the fish when I add this stuff?
