Tahitian Moon Sand
I am just wondering if anyone has had the same experience that I had this weekend.
I changed out my substrate from gravel to Eco-Complete covered by Tahitian Moon sand. All went well until I dumped in the final bag of sand. This sand was noticably darker than the sand from the other two bags and also had a whole lot of debris. I picked out whole and fragmented seashells and all kinds of rocks ranging from pebbles to one the length and diameter of my thumb.
I have not acid tested the rocks, but I am pretty sure would sizzle when I do.
Any ideas on what happened here? Does it sound like I got a bag that was marked wrong or does this stuff really come from the beach and I just got a bag that wasnt filtered?
It is not the end of the world, but I am a little disapointed to have these white specks all over my nice black sand. I am also curious to see what this is going to do to my water parameters.
