Good substrate?

Has anybody used CaribSea FloraMax Planted Aquarium Substrate for their substrate and would you recommend it?

Aokashi was nice enough to send me a few plants since I won the plant contest but didn't find out until today because I was sick.

I have it, only thing is easy in easy out, Yo the Golden Mystery Snail would uproot the plants as he bull doze from one end of the tank to another trying to "rush" to the algae wafer before the amano shrimps grab them.

Also they get unravelled during WC, convering my Marimo Moss Ball, and they can cling to a magnetic thermometer, and watch our if you have the Magic Algae Cleaner.

I am sick of putting the plants back in. I am thinking of laying a layer of 1" black gravel on top....

BUT they have been good to helping my plants grow.

If you do not mind the maintainance, it is a nice substrate.

Thanks
