Yup, Fluorite not settling!
I'm fairly new to the whole planted aquarium idea, so I figured I'd try. I bought Black sand and also Fluorite, knowing that it helps with plant growth. Soooooo, I layered the bottom then placed the sand on top. But when I went to add the water slowly, taking the bucket and letting the water run down the glass softly, it began to turn muddy. My girlfriend being more patient than I convinced me to let it settle and everything will be fine...WRONG! I let settle for 4 days and nothing has changed... so I was wondering is there another way to fertilize plants instead of fluorite?
