black blasting media

Dose anyone know if black Blasting media holds hills?

If not what do you all think of mixing black blasting media with safe-t-absor?

This is how I set up my new tank a few weeks ago. I will update this thread as things progress. Obviously the less you mess with a slope the longer it will hold.

you can mix the stuff with clay for a bit more hold, but packing isn't a good thing.

the only way i could see one staying put is with heavily rooted ground cover locking the soil in place. lots of fish like to dig, trumpet and assassin snails burrow, etc...
