I love the way black sand looks. But it looks dirty fast. But crushed volcanic rock is da best. It looks similar to sand but it's bigger and doesen't stir like sand. But it is some major money. About two bucks a pound

i really like this stuff i bought for my new tank.. it has white, light / dark green, black, and gray gravel in it... the light green looks like it actually glows a little bit, cool stuff, plus it's only 15 cents a lb. at my LFS
.. when i get it set up i'll post a better pic, that one was just taken on my desk, but you get the idea... btw i voted black sand

I think it all depends on what fish and decor you have in your tank. If you want the fish to blend in, get gravel or sand that is more towards the fishes color. If you want the fish to stand out in your tank, get the opposite colored gravel.

For SW, sand is the only way to go
