hagen river sand (turtles)
i saw a package of this in the terrarium / vivarium section of petco for a fairly steep price, (can't remember specifically) but it was quite attractive. a very dark brown and black fine grained sand. i'm curious if anyone has ever used this in a planted tank as a top layer, and if so, how did it perform? i'm currently using straight profile with root tabs for swords in one tank and tahitian moon in another with only water column ferts. would a very fine sand stay on top of profile for very long at all? is there another source for dark sand other than tahitian moon (not looking for black, more like dark brown) that's fairly priced? my wife says that it (the turtle stuff)was $7 a bag. not sure how much was in a bag, but it was darn small... maybe a couple pounds...
if i can find the product listed on any websites i'll link to it.
