mixing flourite black and flourite black sand

For some reason I want to do this. Im imagining that it will give a more natural look to the substrate (could be wrong). I will be ordering online so I thought I would ask advice before pulling the trigger. I think I will buy one bag of each and kind of mix from sandy mix in front of the tank to normal in back (which should be covered by plants after it grows in). Am I going to regret doing this?

I am also considering putting a bag of normal black gravel down underneath the back part of the tank to give more depth.

I mixed fluorite black and fluorite black sand in my 35g hex and I love it. It also grows plants really well with root tabs. I wouldn't use the gravel though.

It works. I've mixed them together and have the mix capping Miracle Gro right now in both my 90 and 46gals.
