Well i found this CaribSea Tropic Isle Tahitian Moon Sand 20 lb
and i was wondering if any one as used it b4.
I like black sand in my FW and think it would look good in my SW nano.
What do you all think ?
Also is there any other options?
i would like to know if this is the olny good/bad black sand i can use.

Well I got that stuff in my dwarf seahorse tank and I'm thinking of taking it out. The bottom of my live rock turned black. I don't know why but this morning I seen it was back to normal color. I had taken the rock out of the 5gal. tank that the horses are in and put it in the 10gal. tank next to it because the skimmer is in it just incase it was a chemical reaction going on.Every where the rock was in the sand was black. I have a thread on going about this . It has some pics of my rock.Check it out.

I use it and it's been fine. It's also heavy enough that I don't suck it up when vaccuuming the tank. Just be sure to rinse it thoroughly before putting it in the tank. I like the look of it.

Just be aware that crab poop will be more visible against the black floor than it would against a white floor. Overall though, I like the look.

Mike.

It looks great imo. Just rinse it really really really well. Otherwise you get a nasty film on top of the tank.
