RE: How much flourite (answer)
I have also just set up a 75 gallon tank - 48*18*21H - using flourite. I
tried to use the recommended amount - 1Kg for every 31 inches square. I
have 864 in sq. and needed 28 Kg of flourite = 4 bags. I actually used 5
bags and even that only gave me a 2 1/4 inch layer. If I could do it again
I would add some gravel to make the layer at least 3" deep. I am not sure
why such a thin layer is recommended. Maybe it is not that important, but
it does make it difficult to keep some of the plants ... planted.
In addition I would count on spending some time rinsing the flourite before
putting in the tank.
