Re: Dark Substrate



Thanks, Diane, I've used Fluorite which is great for planted tanks. If Onyx
is not matte black, I'm not very interested. I am trying to stay away from
anything that will
reflect light. I want to bring out the natural colors of my killies without
their looking like "killies in the sky with diamonds." I may not get there
from here, but am going to
experiment with layered substrates and try to make it look more biotopical,
less contrived (my only grief with Fluorite).
