Torn. To keep white sand or go black...?

SO I have bought a slightly bigger tank. I will be going from a 2.7 gallon to a 7.5 gallon. I currently have white sand. Its really not so hard to keep clean. I go in with a turkey baster to clean Lincolns leftover food and waste every day or so.

I was thinking of returning the new bag of white sand I recently got and buying black instead then maybe adding a few handfuls of my currently white sand to the new black when I set my bigger tank up. You know, mostly black but just a bit of white.

I worry the white may be too bright by reflecting for light up than black would plus I think Lincoln would look much more colorful.

Thoughts?

Anyone possibly have a black/white sand mix that could share a pic?

I'd say if you have had white to go with the black sand for a change. If you don't like it you can always do like you said and mix it with the white. What color is you fish? Pic?

You are absolutely correct that white sand can reflect too much light for shade-loving Betta. I feel dark sand is much better.

I love the look of black sand/rocks in a tank with a nicely colored Betta! I hope to see pictures!
