Wondering if anyone had had success with layering sand over Eco Complete? I have a 50 lb bag of pool filter sand that I was planning to use in the 55 gallon I'm setting up (was going to do a Malawi rift cichlid tank but have changed my mind and want to do a planted community tank). I could try to sell the bag of sand if worse comes to worse, but I do like the look of it and it's easy maintain. If I were to start the plants in Eco Complete and then put a small layer of sand over top of it, do you think the sand would choke out the plants growing in the bottom layer?

Ah, makes sense. Yeah, I could see how that would end up looking terrible after a while. I'll try to sell off the sand then since it just doesn't seem to jive with other substrate materials. Thanks everyone for the input.
