    Yes in the bag both substrate i bought look black.
    But compare to the bigger granules you can actually see the difference.
    Luckily i cover the most part with smaller granules.. the black has a sparkle which i don't like.

    In the second picture you can actually see the black compare to the brown

    Looking very good. Like the color of the new substrate. If your still looking for schooling fish look at the dwarf neon rainbows, Melanotaenia praecox. Stunning little fish. Grows to about 5cm. Males have red fins and females orange/yellow.
