how big is the 9 liter bag of ada amazonia?


like compared to a 20 lb bag of eco or sand, how big would the bag be?

and also where is the best/cheapest place to get it? the ada-na site charges like 20 for shipping :/

The 9L bag will completely fill a 2.5 gallon tank if you're just looking at volume. If I remember correctly, the bags are pretty close size-wise.
Can't answer your pricing question.
