So it is not a definate that the flourite sand will grow plants better than pool filter sand?

I am planting a discus tank (switching tanks - planting new tank then then transferring the discus).

I have white pool filter sand, and was thinking of sectioning off an area that would have flourite black sand and be planted

I do not use CO2, just flourish and excel. But will probably upgrade to CO2 around x-mas time.

My plants are: rotala indica, java attached to DW, crinum thaianum + calamustrium, dwarf hairgrass, ludwigia repens, lobelia c. small form, e. bleheri.


Thanks for all your help folks!
