Flourite & Amazonia, too much?

I know flourite is good for tanks, but I like the look of Amazonia. So should layer it with Amazonia on top or just go for Amazonia?

The only reason why I would use ADA Amazonia for a cap is if the tank is too large and you don't want to spend too much money but still have that ADA feel to it. I would just use Amazonia by itself, from what I've read and seen, it's one of the best plant substrate there is.

Amazonia all the way!
Flourite doesn't even compare IMO.

When I use Amazonia I would proabably use sand as a base, that's what I did in my other tank, because It doesn't need that 4 in worth or nutrients.
