I know a lot of people opt out of sand in favor of millet or heavy millet mixtures of birdseed for their Uro substrates. I was just wondering if anyone has ever tried different kinds of seeds, particularly Niger seeds for the substrate? Niger seeds are very small, and are a shiny brown/black color: http://product-image.tradeindia.com/00362573/b/2/Niger-Seed.jpg

I figured since Niger seeds are high in protein like millet, it would be fairly similar in dietary value for a Uro. The thing I like most though is the color. Black seeds might bring out the color of a Uro better (particularly an ornate, which I want to get) because of the stark contrast.

What do you guys think?
