Hello. As the grit gets smaller, the material size gets larger. Here is a chart for reference http://www.mediablast.com/grit-size-conversions.php

The review for the blackbull said it was crazy dusty......I may go check it out in person sometime but I do not like dusty too much work to get it ready for use, I will stick with black diamond

For $25, you could just buy an aquarium-specific black sand.

The beauty of Black Diamond is that it's crazy cheap.

Thanks to all , But had heard that pool company's carry some sort of Black Sand {I've never seen them} I've use number 2 and 3 sand and had great plant growth with a little Latrite for a bottom layer but would wish to have the same in a Black color sand.
