Flourite is dirty stuff.
I spent hours washing 75 pounds of Flourite Red [by Seachem] on
Saturday. What a chore. The stuff is so dirty you cant even see your hand
in the bucket until about the 4th or 5th rinse.
I had half of it in the tank before I discovered that it will eventually
rinse clean. Just put about 3 pounds at a time in a bucket, angle the
bucket, and run the hose on it until it runs clear. Plan on spending hours.
Get a TV or radio and a 6 pack.
Unfortunately, since I discovered this late, I now have a very messy
substrate in my tank. I may start a new style, with this my first heavily
planted tank, called "Muddy Waters." Very natural.
I hope this helps you someday.
