Sand and eco complete

Has anyone ever done sand on top of eco? Does in end up mixing together after long periods or does it stay seperated?

The smallest substrate will always end up on the bottom over time.

If you are going to use Eco you are best off using it straight up.

If you want to mix something then Flourite and coarse sand works quite well.
