Here's the tank as it is now:
I really like the look of the sand at the base of the stones, so I think what I'll end up doing is splitting the substrate with the sand in the front and in the middle of the tank, between the stones, and the aquasoil in the back towards the front at the sides.
Thanks for the help in talking me through the thought process =)

Nope. Sand is heavier.
Feel free to search through the forum to see instances of sand settling beneath lighter substrates like Aquasoil and larger substrates like pea gravel.

People don't cap pelletized soil products with sand, typically, because the sand will settle beneath the soil.
Mineralized Top Soil or standard organic top soil that people use works just as well as the ADA products if you plan to cap. Otherwise, ADA products are best used as the only substrate in the tank (additives of your choice not included).

Why not just use regular soil if you are going to cap it?
And, why not just use pool filter sand? That's way cheaper.

First: Why would you put sand over expensive ADA Amazonia?
That out of the way - sand will eventually settle beneath it.

mekong sand over amazonia?
Can I use 1/4" or so of mekong sand over amazonia substrate?
I'll be planting dwarf hair grass, hc and possibly another plant.
