[APD] onyx sand and gravel

  With the help of this group I decided to go with onyx sandfor a
substate.  I ordered it last week from Big Al's.  They sent me the
gravel instead.  It wasn't a problem as they are going to send the sand
out and told me to just keep the gravel.  The gravel is really large
size pieces,  may you could even say huge, but a nice color under the
water, a blue gray with white flecks.
  My question is ... is there any benefit to using both and how would I
do the layering?  I will be using peat as my tap has a high KH, GH and
pH.  My thinking is that no matter how I layered the sand it would
eventually work it's way to the bottom ?? and I was hoping for the sand
look on top.  I will only have one bag of sand  and am not sure, but I
figure that will give a 2 inch layer in a 10 gal tank, so if I could use
some of the gravel I could get it a little deeper in the back.  
  Maybe I will try a coordinating stone background with the extra
