Cap with Aquasoil Amazonia II?

I have 3m colorquartz t-grade in black.

I have a 29 gal tank with CRS. I want to switch out the substrate for ADA Amazonia II. Instead of switching it out. Can I just add the Aquasoil on top of the 3M?

The purpose is to lower ph, soften water, CRS loves and needs this. Peat will only lower just a tad and also make water tea color.

So I was thinking of just adding a 9L bag. I know about the ammonia spike I will take the CRS and put in a different tank....

What do you guys think?

If you do decide to do this, use the regular amazonia. I don't see any problem, as Colorquartz is an inert substrate. The two substrates will undoubtedly mix, but that's just an aesthetic thing. People ask this question quite often, and don't get many responses; I'm not sure why. I personally wouldn't cap it with AS, but I'm not sure why. Really helpful, I know.

I think it doesn't get many responses BECAUSE it has been discussed so many times...
