Hey, I was wondering how much flourite would be neccesasry for my set up. It is a 140 L with about 90 W of lighting, a DIY CO2 thing and a liquid fertiliser. I have a fairly average substrate of sand, and gravel (4mm). How much should I get? Would the whole substrate be the best, or what layers should I put everything in? I'm not looking for super growth, but just so that I either don't have to use the liquid fertiliser so I get consistent healthy growth
any help would be really great. thanks

sand plus fluorite works well for my plants. You can layer the substrate or mix it all together.
One bag of fluorite will be plenty with other substrate materials as well.
