When it comes to aquarium plants
, not every substrate or gravel material will work. You need specially selected materials so that your plants are rooting, nutritional and stability requirements are met. The difference in these kinds of materials is in the surface quality. They do not all have the same shape. They do not all have the same base material and they do not all compact the same way. If you are looking for specially selected planting material for your aquarium plants, try the Seachem Flourite Dark from Pet Store

Flourite Dark™ is a specially fracted, stable porous clay gravel for the natural planted aquarium. Its appearance is best suited to planted aquaria, but may be used in any aquarium environment. Flourite Dark™ is most effective when used alone as an integral substrate bed, but it may be mixed with other gravels. Gravel modifiers such as laterite are not necessary. Flourite Dark™ is not chemically coated or treated and will not alter the pH of the water.
Although pre-washed, it may be rinsed before use to remove residual dust. Dust can also be minimized by filling aquarium slowly and dispersing water so that the Flourite Dark™ bed is not disturbed. Slight initial cloudiness is normal and will clear rapidly (212 hours). To shorten the cloudiness period use Clarity™ in conjuction with mechanical filtration (such as filter floss).
