This may have been covered before, apologies if so.
I'm redoing my tank and going with a DSM with a soil/clay MTS method (without the MTS).
From what I've read, the soil will mineralize during the DSM phase so I can skip the whole rinse and dry steps?
My question is for those of you who have used the Flourite Black Sand for capping is does this stuff blow around or is it heavy enough that the water flow does not disturb it? The problem I've had in the past is with substrate that is too light and gets disturbed easily by the water flow from the powerheads, etc.
I want to grow out an emersed hc carpet, and was wondering if I should use the Flourite black, or the Flourite Black sand. The sand seems to be the better for the fine roots the hc has.
I'd like some feedback before I go and spend $200 on substrate.
Your comments and feedback are very much appreciated.
