I do hear good things about the new black Fluorite, but I haven't tried it out yet.
Next tank I set up I'm going to try out a product developed to go under sports fields called Turface; I've been hearing mixed things about it, but I want to try it out...
Okay the turface i have never even heard of untill this post. could you tell me more? It does sound interesting? maybe I'll look it up myself...
The eco substrate is so far a top pick for me. unfortunately I found out late about the use of this stuff, and now I have a 55 gal. tank with 100 pounds of flourite red... it's gonna be a pricey re-do for me but maybe in the future.
