Yes you can add a 'dusting' of peat under your substrate but that will effect
your PH a bit what is your ultimate goal ?

Take a look at the "Mineralized Top Soil Substrate" thread here in this forum
it's good information for similar results.

What do you mean by water column? and my ultimate goal is to have a very healthy planted take, high tech with some fish and shrimp.

"Water column" is the open water in the tank.

I have a thin layer of peat underneath the flourite in my 90gal and IMO it works just fine.

"Thin" is definitely the key word, though- you want to be able to see through the peat to the bottom of the tank.
