I have a 10 gal natural tank using EC, and it is more than adequate for what I need it to do. My plants are very healthy, as are the inhabitants. Is it the best substrate out there on the market? definitely not, but it will certainly get you buy, and the stuff lasts forever.

I've had Flourite Red in a heavily planted, low/medium light 10 gallon for over three years now. As many have said -- as the substrate ages, it fares much better. My rooted plants have done considerably better in the last few years, compared to the first few months of setting up the tank. I have a JBJ Picotope with Flourite Black Sand, and that tank is doing great as well. Growth rates are slow in both tanks, but they are fairly low tech, so what can you expect.

I have no complaints about Flourite alone as a substrate, but in the future will be experimenting with mineralized top soil and Miracle Gro Organic Potting Mix with a Black Diamond cap as a more nutrient rich substrate for low maintenance planted tanks
