Amazonia II Powder Type

I'm currently in the process of setting up a planted zebra pleco tank (77G). Sand is a must in this situation. I can't decide between black fluorite sand and Amazonia II powder sand.

I would prefer to go with Amazonia Powder type as it will lower Ph. Gh ..ect I currently have my other 130G planted with black fluorite and I have no complaints.

Does any one have any experience with Amazonia powder type sand as the main substrate?

I have type II regular type as the main substrate in a tank. You should watch out though because it falls apart easily and it's a nightmare if it settles on your plants. It's great for plants though.

Also, it's going to cost an absolute fortune to fill a 77g with Ada powder.
