Brown substrates

I know about Flourite, and there are some tan and dark brown sand options. Any other mid to dark brown sustrates you guys are aware of?

I have some very cool Nazlini petrified rock coming for my 12g long, and I think black sand would make it look like showtime in Vegas.

Safetsorb is red and brown. Some clays are really red too if you want to tint some sand.

Good options, you guys! Thanks so much. I will do a bunch of research on them and see what fits.

Thanks everyone! I am trying out Carib Sea's Sunset Gold sand. So far, I really like the natural color. Not super bright like pool filter sand can be.
