One thing that no one mentioned is that once you scape a soil tank than that is basically it. You don't want to be rescaping it. So if you like to fiddle with where you have the plants placed avoid soil.
I have done thicker and less of cap before.
BWG is right about placing the plants and forget about moving them. Sometimes you can get away with moving stems but that's about it.
