does certain substrate change your fishs color?

Recommended Posts

Hi.

I have GT's and I've heard that dark substrate will make their color brighter

I want sand was going to go with Tahitian moon sand bit its expensive , thinking of going cheaper sand such as bunnings but will it affect the color of the fish much?

Cheers Sean.

Second that. I guess unless you have seen it, it may not be all that obvious.

But a JAG in a tank with white sand substrate looks very different to a jag in a tank with black pebble substrate. The rock / driftwood / plants in the tank will also have some impact to fish colour / camoflauge.

Ive changed most of my tanks to Black gravel, the Terrors colour up real nice in it compared to the natural stuff, im buying a heap of the Tahitian Moon stuff after we move house.
