Flourite® Premium Aquarium Plant Substrate is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My plants are lovin' it. I bought this about a month ago since I ran out of my previous substrate and was starting a new planted tank. I couldn't wait for shipping on my previous substrate choice so I opted for this one since they had it at my nearby petsmart and so far, it works wonders. Surprisingly, despite the other reviews, I didn't have to rinse it for hours or something. Only a quick wash to remove a noticeable amount of dust/clay particles and then dumped into my new tank. It did cloud the water for an hour but it quickly settled. However, I did take precaution not to disturb the substrate when I was putting in water so that may have had an effect on how long it stayed cloudy. A month later, with the new plants firmly rooting in and growing lushly, it's done great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product!!!! This is my favorite substrate to use in my aquariums. I notice a significant difference in substrate cleanliness using Flourite. Particularly when I vacuum my tank. The amount of detritus that is pulled up is less than my tank with rock gravel. The ceramic seems to absorbe the detritus which I imagine is a good thing. I have a planted aquarium. I feel the absorbed matter can provide nourishment for the plants. When you first purchase Flourite it is very difficult to rinse off. There is a lot of clay dust powder that comes off. It seems endless at first but eventually stops completely. Maybe Seachem can do something about the amount of clay dust in the bags. I feel it's performance as a aquarium substrate is excellent though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from didn't believe it at first This is the product i really like, i never know what exactly i needed to do this correctly. So I laid a couple of layers of substrate down on the bed of my tank, though gravel on top. And planted a few ferns in, meanwhile i also have a landscape artist aka (blue lobster) in there too. He cut my ferns down to nobbs, so i move them to a better location for a chance at survival. They did within two week baby leaves where up out of the gravel, But i do have some dislikes also. It makes the water very cloudy for several for hours, i almost went though a hold box of filters just to get the water to the visible look i want it. So I got something else to help with that, but in the end i was very satisfied. Great product!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from If you buy this product- WASH IT! I bought this product a day and a half ago. I figured since it was "pre-washed", I'd skip the washing. I set up my tank, and filled it. After the 12hr mark I realised it just wasn't going to settle. Then, I catch a glimpse of my little fern in the corner, and see at least a centimeter of "dust" sitting on top of it. Now I'm going to have to empty and re-fill my tank and wash the substrate. I put 3 stars because aside from the misleading bag, I have yet to find out the actual quality of the substrate besides obviously not being pre-washed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from First know how to use it... This is a tricky product the there's alot of settlement in this product, meaning there will be 6-12hrs of cloudiness and I would suggest to have an extra filter on hand, because you'll blow through over night. One way to curve the amount cloudiness for the first time adding water is, layer a couple sheets of paper towel down.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My review for Flourite substrate is rated Poor. I do not recommend this product. Since using this product, I have had nothing but problems with Hair algae, and algae overgrowth in one of my tanks. My other tank with just plain gravel has no algae problems. Thanks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad water! I just bought this a day ago and like the instructions say it was prewashed but may need to be cleaned after shipping. I think that is a total lie as it's extremely dusty. I spent over an hour washing it and I didn't put it in my tank until that water ran crystal clear. However the water is the tank is cloudy from the dust and I changed the water several times and I can't get it clear. I very much regret getting this as it's becoming a huge hassle and I have plants and fish that need this tank asap.
