    Hi everyone

    I've been thinking about going with Caribsea's Hawaiian Black aragonite substrate. Does anyone on this forum use black substrate? I'm just not sure what it would look like and would really like to see it in someone's photos.

    thanks!

    Hi B2048. I have been using the substrate for a few months now. It is awesome! Take a look at my tank thread and you will find it there. :)

    Mek, you are using the Indo-pacific black and white one like me if I'm not mistaken, he said "black" - I know you get a pitch black hawaiian one, like your BM's tyres :lol:

    Yes, it's definitely the Indo-Pacific :p

    But thanks anyway. Can you believe that even Google cannot find marine tanks with a black substrate? Crazy!

    Thanks guys!

    Wow! It does look good ;)

    I believe the Hawaiian Black is also burrower friendly so it's a good all-round choice.
