So glad for the positive reviews. Woke up this morning with my old 40gal mostly on my living room floor. Had to put my plants & puffers in a tote and fly to pet smart. Bought this stuff with a new 65gal. Every fish survived though many plants melted ; hoping the flora max will help them come back.

If the roots are intact they should come back. Sad to report I had to ditch my floramax and lost all 7 bags of it. Too mixed in with the potting soil and over a year it turned into an organic loaded mess which caused algae growth which was absolutely uncontrollable. I've switched to blasting sand. Loved the grit size and shape of the floramax but to replace that amount just isn't in the budget. The sand was $8 for the amount needed. Floramax would have been easily $150 for that amount
