it was my understanding that active flora was better than the rest but more expensive than aquasoil o.0, i would go aquasoil or some cheap but working route, pfs and turface pro leage are greatIve used it as well...nothing that sets it apart from the others...I think its generally agreed upon for ease/nutrients/value/cost that it is
1. Aquasoil (best but very expensive)
2-98. the rest (floramax, fluorite, eco complete, activ flora etc. etc etc) (great but costly in bulk)
99. DIY style substrate capped/MTS (great results and cheap...but limits the amount of rescaping you can do before starting over)
100. sand (inert, only works with a dosing regimen)
you can grow anything and everything in each of the substrates...just comes down to how you fertilize and add CO2 w/ light
...ease vs cost vs availability is my main criteria so I use MTS
no...the mineral breakdown is identical to a bag of flourite (or so both companies claim) and price is comparableit was my understanding that active flora was better than the rest but more expensive than aquasoil o.0, i would go aquasoil or some cheap but working route, pfs and turface pro leage are great
i may have been thinking about flora base, my bad.
i loved using miracle grow organic also however i used way too deep of a bedding and ended up gassing my fish and my room, it was disgusting having the stuff breakdown under water....
