Hello. Because I want to reset my Florida biotope I need a bit help to pick right substrate. Now I'm using a black type but in most picture I saw in most springs there is white sand bottom. Do you think a 1-2 mm white sand will be best choice?
For the moment I have Heterandria Formosa, Cambarellus schmitii, Pomaceea Paludosa and as plants ludwigia, hydrocotyle umbrellata, eleocharis parvula, gratiola viscindula, penthorum senoides and lobelia cardinali mini. Rocks and woods as decorations.
But as I said, I have a big problem to pick substrate and I need help.

It is my opinion that black substrate provides the best presentation for aquaria, although I have to admit that I have not tried pure white.
