    Well all I wanted to know if I should get black sand or just white sand cause I was thinking that I could see them more with black sand but with black sand the tank wouldn't look so bright but with white sand I will...? Plz tell me your opinions thanks!

    Use which ever you prefer.
    Some people use black on one side and white on the other. The middle always mixes and grows until it's all black and white though. Pure white sand can get dirty looking but poop shows just fine on black.

    i vote c - tan. That way its not too bright like white, so it wont show dirt too bad, and its not too dark like black. That's what i have in my 75, and i like it.

    Play sand sold by walmart is tan (super cheap but does need a good bit of rinsing) but in the average lighting looks very white - still, not too white but not tan, can't figure that one out ... .
    Knowledge is fun(damental)

    A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is down to just two Sterba's Corys. Filters: continuous new water flow; canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber!! Finally, junked the nitrate removal unit from hell.
