It can have a slight green tint to it depending on the particular application, lighting, depth, etc. Tropics blue is [supposed to be] a little more blue and slightly darker.

    We went with the Tropics Blue and had our first plaster day yesterday (acid washing today). I'll post some additional pics after we get the water in.

    Would love to see it with water in it (right after) and when you get the chems in line. I will be posting ours in our construction thread here. I think we get plaster early next week.
    Zephard - Here are some pics now that water chemistry is in line. Keep in mind my depth profile is 3.5'-5'-4' and this at 11a in the Texas sun. It's a little darker than I expected it to be, but I like it.

    I took a look at your updated pics in your build thread and your color looks similar (given depth, light, etc) - which I think looks pretty good, btw. How do you like it?

    I really do like it. Its just the right blue, not to light, not to dark, and like the mother of pearl pieces in it.

    Your pics look really nice.

    Re: Stonescapes minipebble Tahoe or Tropics blue?

    Christophertx, Greetings. Been following your build with our new build. Same controversy of the tahoe vs tropics going on with us. Would be most appreciative of the full details of your not stones capes tropics blue pool finish. I.E. the specifications of with oe without abalone, mini pebble or regular, or any added/subtracted elements to it. My wife and I agree that your color is awesome. It's exactly what we are looking for. Thanks so much and enjoy your pool once the weather improves. We are in central Texas fyi.

    I love this. And find it so very helpful. We are building a sport pool, 3.5/6/3.5 in sunny California and it has been hard for me to figure out if Tropics blue will be the right depth of color for me but now that I see this photo, I am sold.

    Hi. I'm very new to this forum. Do you have a photo of your completed pool with Stonescapes Tropic Blue? If so, please share. Thanks.
