Tropica Soil Powder vs regular Tropica Soil

I would like some advice from someone have used both the Tropica Soil and Tropica Soil Powder. I'm getting ready to buy soil for my 6', 125G tank and have contemplated both products. I will have carpeting and regular plants. Is there a disadvantage to use only the Powder? Is there an advantage to use the regular Soil at the bottom and top off with Powder. Is there a disadvantage to use only the Powder with regular plants?

10 G / 20 G long, low-tech planted / 125 G, working on the aquascape and collecting hardware

With a huge tank like that, it won't matter much. Even the largest soil substrates look downright super-fine in anything larger than about 20-30 gallons.

There's really no advantage or disadvantage. Carpeting plants and other plants will do fine in either size.
