Dear Dan, Please don't "just lurk". I for one enjoy reading about different
approaches to the subject, and get bogged down with folks sounding off about
ORP, CRI and other laboratory values, which to the layman are at best useless,
as we cannot measure or reproduce the findings, and at worst are just Greek.
I found the idea of two PhD's arguing in public about whether a bucket of water
is blue and why, at first amusing, and when it got to playground level, boring.
BTW, I have not seen any "hard stuff" about your kitty literite substrate yet,
now the air is cleared a little (no doubt something to do with the refractive
coefficient of hot air and bulldust), could some of the gurus give us some
opinions on the subject? For instance, some folks use plain gravel for their
substrate, others use vermiculite, as I understand it both of these are to all
intents and purposes inert. Is kittylit going to be better than these and if so
