2" in a 10g will probably be just fine. I don't like taking up 1/4 of my tank with just sand, either.
3" is the recommendation for total depth. So you can layer it (1" laterite, 1 1/2" Gravel, 1/2" sand).
The only problem with layering is that the sand will eventually sift its way to the bottom and intermix with the gravel or Flourite so you'll end up with slightly less depth but I still think you'll be just fine with 1 bag of Flourite and 1 1/2" of sand in your 20g.
Bigals is renovating their site, there are a few things I haven't been able to find.
