For the price of Laterite Gold I was no where near considering it! If there were 20 raving review I might consider the thought. I'm just wondering if it was as great as the LFS made it to be. I can't honestly believe that it works so much better then flourite or eco-complete. I have the same attitude as Darla.
Anyway it does work. There were 2 fairly identical tanks in size, lighting, no CO2. One had sand, the other sand/Gold, and difference in plant condition was noticeable. Any other laterite would do the same.
