I didn't mix anything with it. Sand being smaller will fall to the bottom if mixed with larger-particle materials. I do not like mixing substrates, and they "separate" and look odd. Copy nature, it will give you a much more natural appearance, assuming that is what you want.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
