I've never once seen black pool filter sand, I dont even think they make it. They do make crayola play sand in black, but I've never looked in to it to see if it's even an option with aquariums. BigJim uses black blast blasting sand in at least one of his tanks... a much cheaper option than tahitian moon sand. FWIW, I have used TMS and hated it... way too fine.
