Hello,

 

Does that black sand fit for marine? I haven't seen anyone using that before. Is there a benefit for using that?

Very very nice, the lighting with the black sand really makes those shrooms stand out. The shape of your rock is really nice too. I was debating whether or not to go with the black sand. Now that i see yours, I wish I had. Once again, very nice. :)

Cyber- Yes you can use black sand for marine tanks. I think Acoustic wanted it mainly to help take better pictures (it wont reflect the light ). I know people with dwarf seahorses sometimes used black sand so that the horses contrast with it and are easier seen.

Thanks Spencerx you are right. That frag in the middle is red grape caluerpa. The blue mushrooms I bought are the bluest colormorph I have ever seen. I will defintely frag and sell them when they start to overpopulate my tank.

1)I have noticed that it is the same as white sand in regards to algae and ditritus. You can still see it.

 

2) Thanks for the complement but I an not an artist. In real life I am an investigator.

Frost thanks for the ego boost. Check your zoos at night. Sounds like you have a predator. Look for little tiny nudibranches or checkered pattern snails. If you don't find anything let me know and I will do more research for you.

The black sand looks great! I'm still trying to decided for my tank, and my background will be black so i'm not sure....

 

Is the black sand really fine? or more on the coarse side? I don't want fine sugary sand that gets stired up easily. Can you find it in different grades?

 

thanks! and again, beautiful tank!
