I haven't used Flourite, but as far as I know, it's like a sand-like substrate? To me anything that is sand or of the like is incredibly messy it would seem and not worth the effort. that's just IMO
I use Floramax because it's so readily available, and so cheap. 7 bucks a bag? seems like a no brainer. I did have to wash it a LOT, but after that, I put it in the tank, topped it with eco complete, and plants have been growing nicely. In fact, my crypts, which had been struggling and melting before that, really took off after I put the new substrate in. I haven't had any issues so far. no cloudy water or anything like that.
I'd say Floramax.
