Sansibar JBL Dark: Dark “Black and White” Primer For Aquarium!

In one of our aquariums lay a light coloured soil. Later decided to replace it with a darker one. And in order not to disturb the biological balance, the light coloured soil decided to leave. And just put the dark soil on top. It turned out beautifully, but only up to the first siphon of soil. Then everything mixed up and it turned out an unpleasant type of colorful porridge. 

Therefore, we decided to completely replace the soil. And since shrimps live in the aquarium, the soil was selected mainly for them. Well, as always, the main criterion for selecting a soil should be its naturalness. So that there is no plastic or dyes in the composition. By the way, in a local and fairly large pet store, I could not find a suitable primer. One solid plastic with some unthinkable space colors. (This is why then there are so many posts in aquarium groups about fish diseases among novice divers).

In general, I had to search on the Internet. And quite quickly and at an excellent price, a suitable option was found, Sansibar Jbl Dark.

As we can see from the description on the package - Sansibar Jbl Dark completely natural, neutral in water, and most importantly, ideal for crabs and shrimps.

After removing the sand from the package, a dark gray substance appears in front of us, which, when close-up, looks rather black and white. The sand will also look good in the aquarium. You will look from afar - gray, you will bring your eyes closer, black and white. (In the photo and video below). The sand is very fine and pleasant to the touch.

The most difficult with the preparation of this soil, is to wash it. Although manufacturers write that it is almost ready for use and you need to remove only dust that has arisen during transportation. We washed our own for quite a long time and many times. But, unlike other soils (read after this post) in our aquariums, we could not achieve perfect water clarity. And we came to the conclusion that some grains of sand are very small and simply do not immediately sink. Therefore, we decided to lay down and see what happens. In the end, after a couple of days everything settled down, and the water became clear. Shrimps, both large and small, they perfectly feel themselves on it, the paws do not scratch, and even pass grains of sand through their mouths. All this can be seen in detail in the video below.
