Substrate poundage for a 4 gallon?

Hello, thinking about getting a 4 gallon from Finnex. I was wondering if a 4.4 pound bag of substrate would be enough to fill the tank. I am ordering this off of the internet, so I'm not sure if it would be enough.

Dimensions: 12 1/4 x 7 1/2 x 10 1/4

Thanks!

4.4 pound bag should be enough. I bought an 8 lb bag of Fluval shrimp stratum and it was enough for me to do a 4 gallon 10" cube, a small fish bowl and still have about half a bag left over.
