 Hello  All,
          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.
 
 Kind  Regards,
 Ram

 Hi  Ram,
 
 Welcome  to  IAH.
 
 You  can  get  Aragonite  sand  in  Blue  Aqua  Studio  (JP  Nagar  7th  Phase).  Also  you  could  get  the  Cichlid  sand  too  there.  They  have  the  Seachem  brand  soils.
 
 Black  rocks-  I  have  seen  them  only  in  ADA!!  You  might  have  to  check  them  in  Aquarium  store  Indiranagar.

 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  ?
