Fluorite: black vs onyx vs sand EDIT: Ordered Aquasoil...
I'm confused... please clarify if you can. I'm looking to replace the nightmarish SMS charcoal in my 46 bow with another black substrate. I've had pretty good results with the regular old red fluorite so... I'm assuming that the fluorite black is the same as the red, how does the fluorite black compare to the fluorite black sand? How does the fluorite black sand compare to the onyx sand? Is one better then the other for plants? Is the copper content a concern for any shrimp? I had thousands of red cherry shrimp with fluorite but all or my crystals died in it/// could this have been the cause? Now I'm getting off topic... thanks
