Re: [APD] substrates

if you like the appearance of the sand you will probably lose that  
appearance with any of the substrates you mentioned. All will have larger grain  size 
and the sand will end up on the bottom of the tank.
If you really like the way the sand looks, I would say just dose the water  
column with whatever you plan to use and add a little iron supplement if you  
think there is a deficiency.
IMHO CO2 plus Ferts plus Light (adequate 2-3WPG) plus a good maintenance  
routine = healthy plants regardless of whether you spend a lot of money on the  
substrate of the month or you use bell sand or pea gravel.
On the other hand if money is not a concern, pick the one that looks the  
best to your eye and go with it!!!
