I want to keep thing tidy, deept enough to lay rock and wood on for hardscape, but I won't be using stem plants and such.

Just bolbitis, needle leaf fern, anubias. Mostly tucked in grooves and attach to wood.

So too deep is bad, too shallow probably bad, so how deep is the right amount?

Take will only be with one species likely to be angels but not 100% on that yet.

If you're not planning on any bottom dwelling fish, you could go bare bottom, or slate tiles if you want some color. Really it just depends on what you like. I'd personally probably do about 1" - 1.5", if I ever went with no rooted plants, but I also always have bottom dwelling fish (cories and/or loaches) and they like digging. HTH...

I still want to have sand for rocks and driftwood. There will still be a heavy scape . I was thinking about an inch as well. Just want some other feedback.

I have several inches of sand in a non planted tank. It got a few gas bubbles for a couple months but after that it has been fine for 3 years. Use a chopstick once a week to vent the gas or just get a few snails/loaches, no problems.
