Is fluorite ok for my pond? by Chris[_3_]
Someone gave me a bunch of fluorite from their old aquarium and I was wondering if I could use it as a substrate for my pond along with river rock? Seems its used a lot for planted aquariums so I think it should be ok in my pond which just has goldfish and koi in it. Cheers, Chris
