Dark Cap for MGOPM

I'm soon to be getting a 90 gallon tank and am thinking of going with a base layer of MGOPM and want to cap it with some kind of a black substrate to make the colors pop out. My initial thought was fluval staratum until i realized that it would probably take about 50-60lbs of it and cost me close to 150$

What else would form a nice looking black cap with out breaking the bank?

What About black diamond blasting sand? That's what I'm considering using.
