newbie azoo question

Im setting up a 30x30 planted tank, thinking about going with 2 inches of flourite black capped with 1 inch of azoo grower bed. any advantage over capping with onyx sand for hc or micro swords, thanks for any opinions

You'd want the Azoo substrate on the bottom- it's actually a nutrient-dense substrate(which you want down by the roots). Azoo will also break down faster if you mess with it too much.
Over time, the Flourite will mix with the Azoo. It won't hurt anything, but it might not be the most visually pleasing.
