Gold Occelatus on black or tan sand?

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I have a dilemma, what substrate to use in a 40 breeder with gold Occelatus? I have my multies on tan sand because it brings out their best colors. I also have similis on black sand for the same reason. I think the black sand would bring out the gold Occelatus colors better, but I’m no expert. Does anyone have any experience with this?

@mynameisnobody I had mine on white aragonite, and now they are in a tank with mixed black sand and white aragonite. If your water is soft to medium, with pH of less than mid 7s, I would choose aragonite sand. If your water is harder/higher pH, I would say to go with any color that you think looks best.
