fluval stratum volume needed??
hey guys ive recently set up a 30g shrimp tank but at the moment i have less than needed substrate... just gravel and black sand. i have fluval stratum in my 10g and it works great for the plants and shrimp i have. now the question is how much do i need for the thirty that is 30"x12"? my goal would be around 1.5'' of this stuff so that would be 540in^3... i just looked around google and i couldn't find any info to stratum's volume. would one 8.8lb bag of stratum be fine or do i need more?
This calculator is a bit more specific in that it allows you to calculate the volume needed for Aqua Soil. That's going to be closer to Fluval Shrimp Stratum than the options with the other calculator here on TPT.
Yep, it's a bit heavier. The good thing about Fluval Stratum is that it's relatively cheap so if, for some reason, you need more? It should be easy to obtain. Two big bags will probably be plenty, though.
