Hello, I am fairly new to this hobby and am setting up a 75 gallon South American Cichlid tank. I am having trouble finding a specific brand of a substrate to buy, I would love some help. I have a HOB filter and a powerful canister filter if that helps. The fish I will be adding is posted below. I would also greatly appreciate any advice that you can provide for these fish.
1 x Gold Nugget Pleco L177 (Baryancistrus sp. L177)
1 x Severum (Heros efascticious)
2 x Firemouth (Thorichthys meeki)
1 x Jewel Cichlid (Hemichromis bimaculatus)
1 x Blood Parrot (Blood Parrot)
1 x Salvini Cichlid (Cichlasoma Salvini)

I don't have much info on the fish but I did just set up a 125 as cichlids tank. I initially put play sand in the tank but despite washing it out like crazy I couldn't get the tank to clear. I wound up ordering Carib sea torpedo beach sand in 50 lb bags online. It was reasonably priced. I think I got 150lbs for 85$. Including shipping. It washed extremely easily and the tank was crystal clear. Very happy with it.
