Terralit:
Aluminum- 33100 mg/kg
I just bought a 2.5lb bag od terralit by Aqualine Buschke feo my ten gallon plant tank i'll only use a little less that half because it's meant for 25gal.
My question is thtat considering the perameters listed belew what is better, and anyone have experience with terralit, I bought it because it'll blend with my gravel and is sold cheaply in small amounts.
