buying good substrate in Canada

Hi, I will soon be setting up a new nano shrimp tank that I would like to use a proper substrate. I have always just used regular LFS stuff in my tanks, but have always thought the stuff I see in pctures looks nicer, and likely is better for plants. Where in canada can one order a good substrate for planted tanks? I want something in black or charcoal colour, not as fine as sand, but more like small gravel. Other than eBay is there a source?

Most LFS should carry the Fluval Ebi substrate.

Another option if you have a bit of change is getting ADA Aquasoil from Aqua Forest Aquarium. I get all my ADA supplies from them.
