    Im in the process of putting a new tank together going for an African Cichlids tanks....right now im debating what type of sand to put in the tank im leaning towards Tahitian Moon Sand reason being to make the color on the fish pop out even more than they do now :) the other sand im leaning towards is Caribsea African Cichlid Mix Sahara Sand reason being to make the tank feel like a more natural home to these fish?? i was wondering on all your thoughts bewtween the 2 sands im looking to get if the sahara sand is more of a homey feel for the fish then i would rather get that then the black sand, only because i want what is best for the fish...im more than sure their color will still pop out with either sand....if any of you have good results with any other sand feel free to let me know as this is a empty tank im trying to do as much homework as possible i would like to do it right and tank my time....thanks much in advance for your time and concern :)

    I haven't used either but both should be fine as their usage will be the same. I say go with what you like best.

    honestly, its purely an aesthetic choice between the two.
