Thanks! I'm really excited to get this all set up. The 150g was fun, but it was a lot of work and i hope this will be my final tank until i go off to college (but you never know what will happen when you're part of an addictive hobby like this one...).

I'm buying 4 9-liter bags and 2 3-liter bags, since i may want a slight slope. If you click on the "extended information" tab on the product page, it will tell you how many bags you need for the size tank you have. According to that chart, a 58g (36"x18") would need 3 9-liter bags. They do not say how deep the substrate would be though, but i'm assuming around 1.5"
