Argonite with CC

Is it feasable to add argonite to a CC? I already have about 2.5 inches of CC on the bottom of my 75 gallon but i would like more of a natural look. I wouldnt want to take out the CC but add some argonite sand to it. Would this work, or am i thinking way too much as usual!

You can mix the two but the sand will just settle to the bottom and leave the CC on top. This will still require frequent vacuuming to keep nitrates down. Best option is to slowly replace the CC with sand.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
