I only wanted to put sand over it because I didn't think it would be good for Cories. They loved the sand in my old tank

Ohhh well that makes sense. I have never used flormax just heard of it. I don't know what the texture of it is like but if it is as rough and sharp as eco-complete. Corys wouldn't be a good idea. Though from looking at pics of flormax it didn't look that way to me?

Yeah its a pretty rough texture and kind of sharp lol that's why I figured some sand over it would work out better

LoL ok then I don't blame you for trying to put sand on top. I just took my eco-complete out altogether since it was shape and was still having to use root tablets(for my jungle vals.). So didn't see the point of it anymore and wanted sand so went that way.

You'll want to put some screen over it between the layers to stop the flormax from rising above the sand.. nylon screen or some sort of plastic.

What plastic would be safe in the tank? Like viscolyene?

Well here is what I did today first i received this!

and did some of this

and here is a picture of the floramax for reference


I figured i'd make kind of a hill/rise in the back right corner to make it a bit different also it will make a good spot for the driftwood i ordered and the plants/driftwood should be here Thursday!
