Flourite AND Eco???

Anyone ever used a mixture of Eco and Flourite?? I have 2 bags of Eco in my garage and the lfs only carries Flourite. I was considering changing my 72 gal bow over to a planted tank and was thinking of mixing the two substrates (probably pick up 2-3 bags of Flourite). Any ideas, concerns with this??

thanks

i saw some hobbyist that doing the mixture with no problem, so i think its safe to do that, but ofcourse i still recommend 100% of either two

I don't think there is anything to worry about. They should be fine together.

The only concern I might have is how the two products will look when mixed together.

I was going to get the darker Flourite, not the real red one. I think it might actually add some character to the solid black Eco. When I do it, I'll post a pic and let you guys decide..
