Are you talking about laterite being the stuff you mix with the gravel? It 
should last longer than 2 years. I think Flourite is probably the best 
long-term substrate on the market, if you can find it at affordable prices 
down there. You could probably get one of the mail order places to ship 
internationally, and I don't think you'd have export/import problems 
shipping rock that is intended to be free of critters. Shipping charges 
will probably make it expensive though -- even local-ish shipping charges 
for bags of Flourite can be pretty significant.
