I had a chance to skim the articles. Yes, there is a lot of information. Worse, I think I might be in some trouble. I went from a faux pas plastic plant tank to a planted tank without considering the substrate. I have natural gravel in the tank a good three inches likely.

Looks like most of the substrates are supposed to go under the gravel. Buggers... looks like an overhaul coming up over the weekend.

I like that gravel look though for the SA amazon theme I have going. Can I put flourite under the gravel for now until I read more on the subject and decide how to go?

Is flourite available at most lfss?
