I've used Rex's paint strainer method for 6 out of 12 bags, and wish I did it for all 12.

A few other things to remember:
the more aggressive you get with it, the more dust you will make
Fill it very, very slowly. Let it take a long long time, that helps keeps the particles down. no splashing.

Thanks for this advice ... good stuff

I was thinking more about what to add to the substrate to make it more complete ... peat? mulm? Just wondering if anyone had some good advice beyond just adding the flourite to the tank.
