... Sand is not a good substrate to use for plants, I recommend buying some ecocomplete and replacing the areas that you're planning on having plants in with that. That's what most ppl do.

I'm getting Anubias Petite, thats going on the driftwood, and Narrow Leaf Java Fern, thats going on flat rocks in the back... Also getting a moss ball, doesn't need substrate. So no, I'm not changing substrates

Sand grows certain plants quite well as long as it's supplemented. Sometimes supplements are not even needed.
