I’ve always used black substrates to cover up detritus and any other kind of filth. Ready to try white sand or just a lighter colored substrate for a brighter look. Any tips I haven’t thought of to keep it relatively clean ?
White substrate is too bright for the fish. Users who have white substrate often wonder why their fish are always so pale. Rather stick to using black substrate.
White substrate will get just as dirty as black, however the “dirt” so to speak is more noticeable against the colour white. Keeping substrate spotlessly clean would involve repeatedly vacuuming it, which isn’t recommended.
