Beautiful! Flourite really is expensive! I purchased one bag of it for my 20l and mixed it with pool filter sand to spread it out

I believe it is his Banana Plant that is sending out a pad to float on the surface of the water.

Flourite is expensive but, you only have to buy it once. I would bite the bullet and buy more. It's a good investment. I bought mine in 2004 and don't regret it.
