I use 2/3 Red fluorite with 1/3 fluorite black sand in my 29. 45lbs total. I also use osmocote plus tabs and Flourish tabs in the substrate which I will replace every 6 months. Besides the initial rinsing and water cloudiness you get with fluorite, my experience has been positive. I am a fan and the fact that fluorite is a gravel, it doesn't deteriorate like some substrates.I was thinking about doing a close to 50/50 mix of red fluorite/black sand in my 75 gallon for around 100lbs total. Anyone have any experience with it, also if anyone has ever done a mixture of fluorite and sand if be interested to hear what kind of results you had with your plants.

I throw away frogbit twice a week.
My cabomba needs to be cut twice a week the growth is that much.
My background stems grow 3+ inches a week (rotala indica, Narrow ludwigia, broad ludwigia).
Blyxa Japonica is growing well, and so is my downoi and dwarf baby tears.
I dose ei and I have extremely high lights while borderline killing my tank inhabitants with co2.
