Re-using Flourite

I set up a 56 gallon tank a few years back. I put about 3 inches of flourite in the tank. Due to financial reason I took the tank down about 1 month after it was started. There were 3 or 4 fish and a couple of plants etc in there for that month. I drained as much of the water out of the tank as I could and the rest evaporated out. The flourite has been in the tank in my basement ever since. Can I reuse that flourite now to set that tank back up?

Thanks in advance!

Sure! It's just like gravel really! Only more surface area per piece.

I'd give it a few good rinses first though!
