I was referring to laterite (dust), not to fused laterite.  Tho I am glad to
hear of your (positive) experience.   Any experience with just tossing laterite
(dust) into a gravel tank with ugf?   Does it ever clear?   Where does the
laterite go?  Down to the top of the plate, or clear under the plate to the
bottom of the tank itself???   Inquiring minds want to know.   Dave
