Seachem Flourite?

Has any one used this?

I am thinking about useing this in a 10 gallon single dwarf puffer tank that I will be setting up. I plan on putting in lots of plants and I like the natural look of it. If I have this will I still need to use the seachem tabs and florish liquid that I use in my other planted tanks that just have regular gravel?
Thanks in advance for all your help.

I have it in my tank.I use the Flourish Comprehensive liquid fert. but not root tabs.It will cloud the water when you stir it up planting so be sure to rinse it good before you put it in.

Thank you very much. I will rinse it alot before I put it in and then I will plant the plants it will be a few days or more before I get the dwarf puffer because I have been to the 2 of the good LFS around here and they do not have any in stock right now.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Me too, I use Flourite in one of my smaller tanks (mixed with black sand) that is heavily planted. I also use Flourish Comp. in this tank, and a Seachem one root tab (every three months)for the one sword that is growing in this tank.

Your question has been answered by previous two members, so I'm just adding my agreement. Depending upon the plants, you will likely need liquid fertilizer (Flourish is best for this) but not root tabs as you will not have anything as heavy feeding as a large sword in your setup and the Flourite will be sufficient for substrate rooted plants. Floating plants or those not rooted in the substrate obviously derive no benefit from nutrients in the substrate, hence the Flourish; and it also adds some micro-nutrients not in the Flourite.
