Flourite Preparation Info

I appologize if this link has been posted already but i found it extremely informative. Especially for all the people out there that are afraid of using Seachem's Flourite becuase it is said to make your water into a mud bog. This shows a step by step process that the author claims works extremely well. See link:

I have a different method in the substrate section of my Guide that has worked quite well for a number of people.

It's also quicker, and works in the rain.
