Thank you! I agree... I never really liked the "unnatural" colored plants... They look too out of place, particularly with the other decorations in the tank. The tiger barbs, the gold gourami, and the rainbowfish all look SO much better with the black sand then they do in the natural stone... They are looking so much healthier, too, since I added in live plants.
The substrate is actualy 40lbs of tahitian moon sand, and 20lbs of eco-complete.
Fish deserve time, effort and lots of care!!! Please don't impulse buy!
