I got a few questions about safe-t-sorb, asked in a couple other post but not sure if my questions just got glossed over or what.
First, how heavy is it? Does it get kicked up and how well does it hold plants.
How large are the granuals, similar to flourite in weight/size?
Does it do a good job holding down glosso? or should I find a smaller sized substrate, I really rather not use a cap if I don't have to.
Also, from the pictures I've seen of it it looks similar to flourite can anyone else elaborate on its color?
I've also read that it absorbs KH and needs to be charged, would it be possible to sprinkle the barebottom of the tank with a small layer of Omsocote (sp) + and then cover with Safe-T-Sorb? Can this substrate be used as a dry start method? If I ended up using it I could put in buckets while it absorbs KH, water here is pretty hard 13 gh 12 kh.
If this info is somewhere else just post a link, I couldn't find it with the search function.
