Caribsea Aragonite Aragamax Sugar-Sized Sand - OK????

Setting up my first saltwater tank (75g)...

I got 90 lbs Caribsea Aragonite Aragamax Sugar-Sized Sand (Bag labelled Oolite #00930 whatever that means). There was another size at the LFS that was a bit more corse, but I went with the smaller grains. I figured that would be best for the Jawfish and the Scooter Blenny.

I plan on topping that with a 20 lb bag of Live Sand (CaribSea Arag-Alive Live Aragonite Reef Sand, West Caribbean Reef, Product #00794).

Does anyone see a problem with that? Just making sure before I put it in because once it's in, it isn't coming out!

(Just judging by the size of the bags I feel like I'm going to be a little short of 4" in the tank, so I may add little more.)

Sounds like a plan to me.

the only thing I would add to that is a few pounds of real Live Sand from your LFS. Shop around and look for a place that will give you some LS right from their tanks. This will likely have pods and worms and such that you wont find in the bagged live sand.
