Schultz Clay Conditioner (aka Profile) is brownish colored
substrate that is good for a planted tank. In my tank, the
substrate has become a dark brown from the accumulated mulm
with the help of Malaysian Trumpet Snails.

The original color is the color of a ball park. In fact, the
'Turface' used at ball parks is the same stuff as Profile
except it's cheaper.
