I have seen so many different opinions about sand of what color is best as substrate for a mbuna tank, that I would like to do the following survey:
What is your favorite color for sand in a mbuna tank? Why?
Thanks a lot for your opinions!

I have one tank with white and one with play sand (brown). The white becomes brown quickly with Diatoms. It's not a terrible look but don't expect it to stay white unless you know a trick I don't.

I like the brown alot although in the future I want to try mixing it with something else to get a different look. All brown can get boring after a few tanks are set up.
