ADA Sub System


I am planning on buying a complete set of the ada subtrate system off of ebay and it only comes with 5g of each. Would that be enough for a 45x27x30.

5 grams is an awfully small amount of substrate. Aquasoil is sold in kilogram amounts normally.

Just buy more ADA aqua soil..........16 lbs is not much for a 45x 24x27tank.........is this cm of inches?

Since you use pounds.....I assume inches, 3-4 bags of 9 liters to make a nicer slope etc.
