Can anyone tell me what colour this substrate is?
It's almost black, if you have a look at my new journal linked in my sig you can see it in my setup pics.
Thank you.....may mix it With another substrate...so needs to be blackish!
I guess it is very dark brown, but looks almost black to my eyes. In some of the later pics with the tank flooded and lights on 100% it looks more brown, but I think that is just the picture exposure on the iPhone.
Just that l was looking for small grain to mix with black Colombo flora base small grain!
If you want me to post you a wee zip lock bag with a sample so you can compare before you take the plunge and buy, just PM me your address.
That's very generous and honorable!
I wouldn't put you to all that hassle/bother/inconvenience!
Thanks for the offer!
I've taken plenty from this forum in the way of knowledge, more than happy to give back
You have twisted my arm
Excellent. ....l will message you!
Haha, no worries, you are welcome.
I've used the Tropica Aquarium Soil Powder. I would say it's not really black, but it is a pretty dark brown. The grain size is about 1.5mm, give or take - very pleasing particularly in a small tank for scale.
Also, from my limited experience with plants, its been very good; plants I had only established for 2 weeks, I was surprised to find had rooted quite strongly already
Well, it is ready for the post. I'm glad I am not sending this internationally, I don't want to think what customs would make of little plastic bags filled with brown stuff!
Know what you mean!
It would bring a new meaning to "Dutch style" in the Aquascaping world
Mine is brown, like tan leather colour.
It's in the post Hoggie, first class, but this is Aberdeen, so you might get it tomorrow, but could be Friday. This is Royal Mail we are talking about after all
Most delayed mail is due to inappropriate packaging or wrong postage or even a incorrect address!
If it doesn't come by Friday l will donate £2.00 to the ukaps forum!
Well the packet never came so I have to be humble and eat my words
That's the first time that Royal Mail have let me down!
Will donate £2.00 as promised
