Do I need does nutrients if I use fluorite?

Would I need to use nutrients with fluorite in a planted tank?

Or would the fluorite be enough? I remember reading in a topic that fluorite only absorbs the nutrients.

Thanks in advance

4. Of I have a fancy substrate do I need to fertilize my plants?

If you have nice shoes do you still get hungry? While many of the specialty substrates have high levels of minerals they are very lacking in macro nutrients (see the fertilizer FAQ). So of course you still need to feed your plants.


Taken from my FAQ.
