Does anyone use this? I had an idea of spreading a layer of this, then capping it with pool filter sand. Would that suffice?

They are basically red clay. I used them to mix with my dirt soil.

There's a bag of that stuff at the bottom of the PFS/black Petco PFS/Flourite in my tank. Can't say for sure it's helped anything, but can't say it's hurt anything either. IIRC, it's high in iron, so should help red plants keep their colors . . .
