I found that flourite was really variable and not rounded like sand, it was brittle shale-like chips. The bag had moisture inside but wasn't wet per se.

If you read my Guide and not just steal the pictures you will find that that particular picture represents the MINIMUM size substrate one would normally want to use in a planted tank.

Why is it "stealing" to post a link to your site, especially when it is clearly identified as a link to your site? It's not even a hidden link. Does that mean everytime someone posts a link to your site, usually to say "read this", that they are "stealing?"

People post links to sites all the time, and that doesn't mean they are "stealing" pictures when that link leads to a photograph. This person didn't do anything wrong, he has a legitimate question, and he deserved a better answer than a baseless accusation.

Originally it wasn't a link to his site. Maybe you should have read the entire thread BEFORE you jumped all over Rex..

You can see he edited the post and apologized.
