Adding fibre to an arena

I cant remember exactly how much fibre I added, but an awful lot! It didn't work and I kept adding more as I didn't want to take it all up as i had bought the wrong (beach) sand the first time and I didn't want to admit that I had been 'diddled' a second time! After all this fibre (and rubber) had been added, it was still even deeper and still loose. Then when it dried out, the fibre rose to the top and it was just a mess of loose fluffy unstable surface. If the sand isn't right, I don't feel it can be fixed. Even plain equestrian silica sand would have been far better on its own than this. Hope you have better luck than me!
