Old thread, but I just heard about this stuff a few days ago and I'm getting mixed messages about it. Some say it's safe, some say it's not. Others say that some batches are bad. Some say its bad for bottom dwellers, others say it's okay.
Also, is this black diamond stuff made from the same stuff as black beauty? How is it different? I really am just trying to find a cheap alternative to black sand with high CEC, similar to flourite black sand or ADA power sand.
