So, I'm new to Cichlids, but not entirely new to aquariums. I have a community tank and recently found a good deal on a 55 gallon. I plan on setting up a Cichlid tank. Anyway, just had a quick question.
What do you think would look better, white or black substrate with texas holey rock? I have a black background and two 50/50 bulbs. I plan to go with blue and yellow cichlids (most likely).
Black Moon sand :thumb: I just switched to it from white one main reason was, the white sand is a PITA to keep clean and shows every little mark of debris. White looks nice, but if you want something easier to care for, then go with black.
black sand should darken the colors of the fish. white sand you can see the debris but at least you know were its at. depends on user. I use pool filter sand and the last 2 bags seem to be a little darker in shade. not black but not bleach white.
