well.. there are a few different ways to make it work. take your pick..
one, is to simply add powersand only to the back 1/3 of the tank area, and keep it mounded so that it rests against the back piece of glass. kinda like making a bead of silicone against the bottom piece of tank glass, and the back piece of glass. works well, but you will get powersand pulling up during replanting...
alternatively, you can evenly distribute the ps all over the bottom of the tank, and secure it with some stainless steel screen. then add aquasoil over that...
another would be to put the powersand in a sturdy thick filter sock, and place that under the aquasoil in an area you do not plan to plant so deeply.
or, put the powersand in the canister of a filter...
the list goes on... be creative, and yet, but thoughtful, and you might find yourself using powersand on all your tanks with aquasoil....possibly even fluorite?
