Does ADA black gravel degrade

Does that ADA black gravel degrade like flora base does?

Only under high pressures (500+gallons) like Tom Barr has proved with the Behemoth he set up.

And maybe over a period of say 3 or 4 years like some have claimed in a normal sized tank (under 200g). It's certainly not like flora base which needs to be replaced every 12 months. ADA soil will last longer than you'll need it.
