|The folks at Seachem have done a wonderful job responding to the needs of aquatic gardeners. No more do we have to rely on do-it-yourself recipes, or expensive, hard to find imported products. Seachem has developed a complete line of well-researched products for the planted aquarium. My personal favorite is Seachem Flourite®. In my opinion this is the best product available as a substrate in the planted aquarium. It is easy to use, attractive, and the plants love it. Since setting up my first Flourite® tank, I have used nothing but!|

|[Onyx Sand™] has a natural buffering capacity, which makes it an excellent choice for a planted marine aquarium or planted African cichlid tank. Its coloration is excellent for bringing out the colors of both the plants and fish and makes a nice contrast to the browns of driftwood. In addition to its aesthetic value, Onyx Sand™ provides essential minerals such as iron. Its buffering capacity is ideal for a stable environment by maintaining the KH at optimum levels without much need for tinkering. Like Flourite, its best trait is its ability to be used as a substrate from day one, without amending with additives or other chemicals, and as the substrate ages, it only gets better. For the planted tank, you can’t go wrong with the choice of Flourite® or Onyx Sand™.|
