what are the long term effects on laterite?

does laterite dissolve over time or does it remain the same size? i plant on using laterite as the bottom layer in my nano and eco-complete on top. will laterite turn to mush?

Laterite is a fine grained clay. It will not dissolve, but it will be a fine layer of (good) mess in the bottom.
