    awesome! is that a pool sand bottom? i had white sand before the floramax and i liked the light color. it was very light and clean! until all the mulm started. haha. i am less than a year into this and i got sick of seeing it! i didn't want to get rid of all of the mulm, since its supposed to be good? is that true?

    i really love the black sand and floramax. but after having it a short time.. im starting to think it shows it even MORE than white. hahaha. dang it.

    the best results i had with a substrate were from Fluval Stratum. Basically the same as the ada soil

    it has something to do with it having a higher cation exchange capacity (cec).. basically it can hold more nutrients in the substrate which is beneficial for the plants

    Indeed it is pool filter sand...nice natural beige color, needs no rinsing, and grows plants very well

    Around $6 for a 50# bag, very inexpensive

    The dark substrates look good, but I tend to stick with this stuff...leaves more $ in the budget for fish, lol

    Just noticed you are from Texas, nice to see new fellow Texans pop up here
