Aww red occasionally? I'd hate that, but it seems like my best choice so far. Sorry to thread jack!

Zolek It has been about a year since I had flourite black sand, but if I had to pick from those I would say it looks like reef flakes / mini flakes mixed. It does have a fair number of smaller particles mixed in though. Grand select are definitely bigger than it. Much to my annoyance it also has the occasional red particle mixed in too.

Interesting. I've been looking for a black sand that has the grit size of Tropical Eden's aragonite sand (reef-flakes or grand select). Would this Flourite black sand product be about the same grit size or smaller?

To get an idea, the aragasnow is the grit size of sugar.

Flourite capped with Black sand?

Question does anyone have any idea if capping flourite off with sand is good? Also is it good substrate to hard scape with and an Iwagumi?
