    What kind of substrate (ideally sand) would be good for a Mbuna tank?

    I'm not sure but pool filter sand seems to work for all kinds of tanks.
    Maybe somebody else will have some input.

    sand , ecco complete for africans(crushed coral mix), river stones, anything small enough for them to dig into :)

    Play Sand works, Clean really well before using. Been working great with my Mbunas.

    It looks like salt and pepper. It is what I have in my Shelldweller tank.
