Seachem Flourite Black 3.5kg (SC-3723)

Gravel is one of the most important elements of an aquarium. The gravel serves as a home for beneficial bacteria. As bacterial colonies develop, natural bio filtration takes place as the bacteria breaks down organic wastes, leftover food, and plant debris. This helps to keep the water clean and safe for your fish and plants.

Flourite Black is a specially fracted stable porous clay gravel for the natural planted aquarium. Its appearance is best suited to planted aquaria, but may be used in any freshwater aquarium environment. Flourite Black is most effective when used alone as an integral substrate bed, but it may be mixed with other gravels. Gravel modifiers such as laterite are not necessary. Flourite Black is not chemically coated or treated and will not alter the pH of the water. Flourite Black is good for the life of the aquarium and need not be replaced.

Set-up

Although it is pre-washed, because Flourite Black is a natural product, it may become dusty in transit and require rinsing before use to remove any residual dust.

When adding water to aquarium, fill slowly to avoid disturbing Flourite Black substrate bed. Place a bowl in the aquarium and add water directly to the bowl, allowing water to overflow softly on to the gravel bed. Initial cloudiness is normal. To remove cloudiness, use mechanical filtration (such as filter floss). Use Clarity to accelerate clearing.

FAQ

Should I be incorporating any other products?

A: Depending on how dense the growth or how dense you wish it to be, the use of Flourish,(foliar feeding), Flourish Tabs (root feeding) and Flourish Iron can be useful and helpful, but are not necessities.

Will Flourite Black substrates maintain their physical integrity as a gravel when it gets wet?

A: Yes

Will Flourite Black substrates work with an under gravel filter?

A: Flourite Black substrates will work fine with an UGF. Flourite Black substrates will not soften or decompose to an unsuitable state. In addition, Flourite Black substrates have an attractive, natural appearance.

As noted on the label, I have rinsed Flourite Black to get rid of any dust. But after rinsing, I am still getting a dense cloud of sand in the residual water. Should I keep on washing it till the water turns clear, would that wash away any of its nutrients?

A: It is possible to experience an excess of particles/dust from this product due to frictional action in packaging and shipping. Flourite Black substrates are ores with a rich mineral composition and are not chemically coated. Even though some small particles washed away, the product is completely viable and will still offer the same benefit. A better way to add this to an established aquarium is to add small amounts at a time a half day to 24 hours apart making sure these small amounts are rinsed thoroughly. You can also use a water clarifier like our Clarity to clump any small free floating particles together making it easier for your mechanical filter to catch. Your cartridges/floss will tend to clog from all the particles being trapped and will need rinsing or replacing regularly.
