Ah okay it looks pretty good to me but I wouldn't want the gravel idk why but I just dont want gravel for whatever reason. I just found some other stuff it goes the complete opposite direction of the "natural" sand look I was wanting but it looks awesome to me. It's called "Black Diamond blasting sand" but the only concern is I want cory catfish and the description says "Black Diamond coal slag granules are very hard and angular in shape"

I have used that too. LoL its kinda rough to the touch. I have read its safe for Corys but I never tried. If you want black look for black tahitian moon sand.

yeah I will probably order some of the Internet. I know caribsea has black sand not sure if it's the preferred one though. Petco is like 30-45 minutes from me I think lol
