Can ADFs live on top of a fluorite substrate?

Can ADFs live on top of a fluorite substrate? Or do I need to add a layer of larger, smoother gravel? About 40% of the fluorite is already covered in smooth gravel and there are many many plants for them to sit on. Is fluorite too sharp-edged for their skin? Might they eat it and get bloated? What do you think?

Sorry, African Dwarf Frogs. There doesn't seem to be a forum for them, they're not invertebrates, fish, or plants, so I stuck the post in the substrate category.

they'll be fine. they do jab at the substrate in their mindless attempt to look for food, but they won't hurt themselves on a sharp heavy substrate like flourite, or they'll jab into it less, but still find food on the surface. they don't need to burrow their noses into the substrate like loaches or botia. if the frog mistakes a substrate piece for food, they'll just spit it right out.
