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.

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.

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.

Hi Wisey
That's very generous and honorable!
I wouldn't put you to all that hassle/bother/inconvenience!
Thanks for the offer!
Cheers

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.

This.

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!

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 :rolleyes:
