The natural tendency of any tank is toward acidification. Since 
Flourite doesn't affect pH it doesn't mask this effect at all. The 
tendency of artificial and some carbonaceous based gravels (this 
includes Onyx) is to slightly raise pH or just hold it steady by 
offsetting the natural acidification.
