Long-term benefits of fluorite?

Hello!  I am in the process of setting up a 125 gallon planted tank.  After
a lot of reading and experimenting I am almost convinced to use fluorite as
a substrate.  However, I couldn't find anything in the archives or on the
krib about the long term benefits of fluorite.  I would greatly appreciate
any and all comments from fluorite users, and especially those who have had
their tank running for a year or longer.  I am particularly interested in
knowing which particular plants thrive or fail.

As a side note - I'm a bit concerned that the large fluorite chunks might be
sufficiently large that excess food particles could get trapped and cause
water quality problems.  Any validity to this concern?

Thanks for your help!
