Where? where!? I don't see the scorp! lol kidding, ya it works very good, the scorpions is very visible! I love the black sand even more cause it's my favorite color!
What kind of sand did you use? and where did you get it from? I'm thinking of picking up a H. arizonesis relatively soon and I love the way that looks, great job.
I personally found it too fine to hold a burrow, and very dusty. But if you like it, why not?
This kind of sand wouldn't be good if I were to use a setup that allowed a scorp to burrow?
i don't know...but ideally you would add it in small layers, an inch or so at a time. Moisten the sand ahead of time or as you add it...pack it down pretty hard using your hand (or whatever you want), add another layer, compact, add layer, compact, and so on until it's the depth you want. You won't be able to just pour sand in a tank to allow tunneling, not quite that simple.
edit: btw...i really like how that tank looks

That said, it could have been a coincidence and possibly just down to the specific calci-sand bag which I purchased. But I find it interesting that you had the same problem.

I mixed it about 40/60 sand/peat, and it just wouldn't hold.
Like I mentioned, it was extremely dusty, and I also found it a little too abrasive for my tastes. I honestly couldn't
I still have a few bags of it around, but washed playsand seems to work better for me. It doesn't look as cool though.
