I am new to this site, and kind of an amatuer in kish keeping.
I recently got a 4foot tank, which is yet to be setup. I am planning to setup an African Cichlid tank.
I saw quite a few videos on youtube, and many have recommended Aragonite Sand, to maintain high pH.
Is this correct? If yes, can you''l please guide me, where I can find it in Bangalore.
I was also looking at ADA Congo, but few reviews state, with gravel its difficult to clean, and also the Cichlids enjoy playing
moving the sand around.
How difficult is it to clean sand? Actual Users ???
And where can i find some nice black rocks that I can use for a cave scaping inside the aquarium.
Awaiting the valuable advice of anyone who can guide me in the right dirrection, with your vast knowledge of fish keeping.
Also, I heard some LFS saying that the dark gravel brings out colours of the fish better, but I would accept that for the yellows, orange and whites. But the darker coloured Blues dont stand out. And also the videos that I noticed, most of them were using a lihgt/white coloured substarte.

Thanks for your quick response and your warm welcome greeting, Shelly. Appreciate it.
Will definitely check out these places. Have seen the Bloo Aqua studio once, a few months back. But have not heard of the Aquarium Store in Indiranagar. I did check the rocks at the ADA store, they had some neat stuff, but definitely over my budget. Therefore I am looking at some cheaper alternatives.
Also would like to ask, if the artificial corals kind of structures are ok to keep for Chichlid setup?
And would you suggest, that I look at any other options for substartes for a chichlid tank ?
