Thanks folks. I was just curious if it could be done, since I have this sand laying around and wouldn't mind it being darker. Thanks for the tips on where to get something else, whatever I decide.

Is there a way to dye pool filter sand a darker color permanently and safely for all that may be concerned?

Sorry to all that followed this thread

I decided a while back not to finish this tank, as I'm sure those who might care figured out. My other tank has been a continuing learning experience, and it convinced me to go with a Walstad...

I'd keep him, just give all the fish some more time to get used to each other. I've never had any gouramis that just stayed at the top. I love them, great fish.
