    I'm in the middle of deciding which colour of gravel should I use for my 4 feet planted tank. Some of the consideration are as follows;

    1. Black - this would created a distinct colour between the plant, fishes and the base, should be a good choice. But then in the long run, it will also review the poos, and the uneaten food which might become unsightly

    2. Red Gravel - could create a similar effects as well as the black, and will not review all the poos and the uneaten food. Might be a better choice.


    Anybody have any comments? or suggestions ?


    Cheers

    stick with black, I used fluorite red before, puts a red cast on everything when you take photos.

    stick to onyx, ada or denerlle black (or plain fluorite)

    Black imho should not reveal dark fish poo, rather, red will reveal it.

    Plus if it's planted, any detrius will look completely natural/invisible.

    I stick with dark colours like brown, black, or the colour of light-coloured wood.

    Go for ADA aquasoil black color, very nice especially against the green of plants. Very contrast..
    Red gravel, not natural as far as I can imagine!
