Hi guys. I'm thinking of using black sand in my contest pico. I remember hearing that black sand had some cons, but i cant seem to find too much online about it. So, other than detritus buildup being more noticable, does anyone have any thoughts? I was also thinking about mixing coarse black with fine whiteish sand in order to obtain a speckled effect. Is this a terrible idea?
Finally, has anyone used the petco brand sand at all? seems good, coarse enough not to blow all over, but fine enough to still look like sand. I just wanna make sure it isnt gonna leach silicates like crazy or sumthin. Thanks!
