Re: [APD] Fluorite..which one?
It's jsut an aesthetic issue. They are essentially the same
except one has more red and less or the darker color.
Either one will perform the same.
I don't think the fired clay, which is what Flourite is, is
the kind of material one finds in the Amazon. It wouldn't
make for a true biotope tank. But it's great for plants.
There is alos a SeaChem product called Onyx sand that is
somewhat diff kind of fired clay that contains carbonate
and has a slight buffering effect -- will raise pH a
little. It is more or less slate gray in color. It's finer
in grain size than Flourite but it also works great for
