Anyone ever try a sand and gravel mixture? Will this help prevent gas pockets? I have gravel now(tank not full of water yet) and was thinking the mix would look cool.

It doesn't work and is more difficult to maintain than one or t'other.

The sand eventually sinks down below the gravel and ends up looking just like gravel with no sand.

I have used clear plastic strips to create a "sand river" before, but there will always be some mixing, particularly if there are bottom dwellers.
