Agreed! :flick: Vicki's page remains to be sage advice. I'm still using Flourite (except now I use Black) and use the same method. I've found that by pursuing the methods she employs, you may lose the fine particles of the substrate, but that eventually is in one's best interest if, like me, you tend to replant and rearrange your tank occassionally. In the past, I didn't follow her method and found that every time I replanted or moved something an immense cloud of dust would be produced. Following Vicki's advice, I've yet to have even the mildest dustup yet, years and years later, lol. Of course individual preference and YMMV always applies...5-year thread bump, huh?
