EwDeg How many bags would you think are necessary for 2.5" depth in a 40B(36"x18")? I'm thinking 4-5.

Mr.Betta What kind of rock is the black active flora? It doesn't appear to be crushed lava rock like eco complete.

astex Lake Gems on the right, the Floracor Red on the left



Lake Gems on left, Flora Gems center, Floracor red on right



Neither of the pictures really shows them accurately as to how it looks in the tank, but if you want a mid-dark substrate the Lake Gems are nice. They look like what I'd imagine a stream bed would, darker pebbles with some grey, brown, and light grey mixed in.

I'm seriously considering it for my 180. I like the flora gems, but think it's a bit too light for the look I'm going for.
