Hey guys, I'm not in the club yet, but how many bags of MGOPM would I need for a 45 gallon? It is two feet high, a foot deep, and three feet long. I should be signing up soon!

I used 3/4 of a 5gl pail of MTS to put 2 1/2" into a 36x16" foot print. I'm sorry I don't know how that will relate to your bags of MGOPM as I don't know how much is in there?

I used two bags of MGOPM (8 dry quart bags) for my 55 gallon. That's a 48" x 13" footprint. That gave me about 1" of soil. I would suggest using two bags for a slightly thicker layer in your tank.

I put water in my dirted tank (MGOPM capped with Eco-Complete) yesterday!

I wanted to wait to be #69, but perhaps I can reserve ahead?
