Aquasoil Africana vs Amizona for looks?

Well, I think based on everything I have read, the aquasoil is a great way to go. Curious what everyones thoughts are about the colors though. Seems like the black would provide a lot of contrast against the plants when done but would show more of any waste etc on it. Any one used the Africana which by the webiste appears a dark brown or have any photos showing what it looks like setup?

The black amazonia does provide that contrast and tends to mask waste as you stated. Although with the right conditions, such as your choice of hardscape, Africana would be a better alternative.

Check out this members nano-tank. Its one of my favorite. He uses Africana beautifully.

Wow thats pretty cool. You know I think I might actually like the dark brown better. Looks light colored dry but dark when wet. IMHO I dunno all black seems kinda unnatural. Makes the plants look great, but everywhere I have been I've never seen an all black river bottom or anything. I might get depressed if I were a fish
