ADA Special Power Sand S Yay or Nay

Hello,

Just want to know your thoughts on this substrate. I'm going to add ADA Amazonia over it. Is it beneficial in any way?

I've had really good results using it under Amazonia in my 17g. Roots do entwine with it and pull it up when you're removing or replanting. It's like pumice but doesn't float. So I have a bunch of it sitting at the top of the substrate after almost a year. Probably will not use it in my next tank for that one reason. .

I used it once when I first started using amazonia years ago. It made a mess when I uprooted plants. After that experience i stopped using it. I did not notice any difference with or without it when it came to the vigor of the plants.

Good results with only aqua soil.
