    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.

    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.
