There are a lot of black gravel choices:

Tahitian Moon Sand
Eco Complete
ADA Amazonia Aquasoil
Flourite Black (newly available)
Flourite Black Sand (newly available)
Flourite Dark (newly available / not quite black, but still nice)
3M Colorquartz Aggregate T-Grade Black Sand (available from many pool and flooring suppliers)

In the D.C., Maryland, or NOVA area? Come check out The Greater Washington Aquatic Plants Association! www.gwapa.org

I'm picking up some course black blasting sand today - hoping it's about the size of texblast. I'll be covering my previously "installed" black expoxy gravel with it, and hopefully it will enhance the look. Then my NEW shrimp tank will be the black blasting sand over the fluorite so the plants will like it and the shrimp will stand out. Not very expensive option at all

Oops! Sorry, I didn't look at that when I jumped in and gave my two cents worth. Apologies rendered
