How much Amazonia for 20L

Quick question. How much Amazonia soil do you think I will need for a 20 gallon long tank? Just 9L?

A 20L is usually 30" x 12" x 12"

So 30" x 12" x 1" is 360in3, which is 5.9L. A 9L bag would give about 1.5" substrate depth.

I'd say you probably want between 2-4" depending on what you're growing/doing in tank. 1.5" will work though.

Well I was going to try and add some extra nutrients under so that should help right? Or maybe not enough...

Guess I'll see of someone has an extra half bag somewhere lol
