substrate for my 60 gallon tank

I'm going to transfer all my cichlids to my new tank. I like black substrate. Can you suggest me some black sand or gravel. And where can I find them?

hmm
not sure what they have in india
but problem you want something a little bigger than sand
cichlids like to dig and make nests, they may even have babies
your probably want some big piece of wood or rock too

Yes. I know. Its very hard to find any kind of aquarium product in India. After searching for 3 months I couldn't find a single fishkeeper who even heard about tahitian black moon. At last I give up.

Perhaps you could find some black blasting sand. You would want #20 grit or #12 grit, and it is normally relatively inexpensive. You can get it wherever sand blasting supplies are sold.
