sadly i cant find black diamond in canada and Black Beauty is no longer available but there are other coal slags being sold. Target sells Black Magic coal slag out of Alberta but doesn’t carry it in BC due to Environmental issues.

This one is a battle! I'm quite jealous of your guys's tractor supply stores!

Substrate recommendations for a large tank

So I found some pea gravel which is not bad a bit colorful and some nice looking crushed basalt which should be tank safe. (Perfect color!)

My only concerns is will the larger size and sharper edges be okay in a shrimp/tetra tank or are the chips to big and jagged?

Got any baseball or athletic fields up there?

Athletic materials seem to hold up better for a cheaper clay product.
