How much Aqua Soil - Power Sand - Powder?
I've been to adgshop.com and found their recommendations for how much Power Sand, Aqua soil, and top layer powder but I find the amounts to be excessive compared to others recommendations. (see attached capture) I don't want to over purchase so as a last effort I am asking for your recommendations for my 55 gallon tank.
I plan on having an average of 2 to 3 inches of total substrate. I've read the Power Sand Special is good to use but wonder how it compares to plain old Peat Moss? Is it worth the money?
Also, I've read the powder finish is nice to have. How thick does it need to be?
