Hi Martyn ! :-)
If you want to know more about laterite, go here :
The article is written by the Excellent Kaspar Horst. You will learn that what you get in Canada is probably not laterite... Be carefull ! Some aquarium products mannufacturers sell laterite that is not laterite !!! Buy laterite by Dupla... read the article and you will understand why ! I use only Laterite from Dupla, and I must say that it's not a mystical thing !!! It worls great for me in my 115 Gal aquarium...
