    I think it’s a very consistent uniformed sand that is just the right size to be visually appealing and also just big enough to stay put.

    Sand man... Too easy of a decision... Take it from a guy who likes his acros too. You don't need a hurricane in your tank to have pretty SPS.
    I agree SAND

    BB = another panel of glass to scrape and clean. lol

    The photo that you posted earlier on looks awesome. Clean and minimalist, but also difficult to maintain that "look". Things grow, get dirty, coralline. Will be more work, but that's part of the fun for some people. I'm a lazy reefer. =)
