yeah, 3-4 bags of the propagating sand willo do it. you want that layer to be a good 5cms thick for the roods to really get into.
the blood and bone is only a sprinkle, two tablespoons sprinkled across the entire bottom will do the trick. and only a handful or two of marble chips. they will buffer the water too much otherwise.
