First time poster on this forum, and I have to say I'm really impressed with all the information this site has!
Anyway, I'm about to setup my second planted tank, and I'm intending to use Flourite (only) as my substrate as its the only nutrient based substrate available here in New Zealand that does not require a top layer. This factor is important to me as I like to be able to move plants in the aquarium without making a massive mess!
I am intending to carpet most of the tank area in Glosso, so its quite important that the Flourite will supply enough nutrients for the Glosso to carpet effectively (I'll also be dosing fertilizer into the water column). I have the option of Flourite, and Flourite Sand so if any particular type is going to be more worth while I'll go with that, or maybe a mix?
PS - I'm really hoping that the Flourite good enough as a stand alone product as we are very limited here in New Zealand when it comes to Aquascaping supplies ADA products are only a dream!!
