HAHA Thanks philip. I'm probably going to do a DIY reactor like the one I made for my 20G. It works pretty well, only does a burp every hour or so.
You don't NEED it. Flourite can be used by itself, but Instead of inserting root tabs constantly, i'd rather just have a base layer that had all the nutrients in it. Also, some plants like crypts are heavy root feeders and they won't thrive as well without extra nutrients in the substrate. If i didn't have as much of a budget I would probably go aqua-soil. I may still do a layer of aqua-soil caped with flourite black sand and flourite dark.
