Planted Tank Question

I bought a bag of Eco-Complete. It is as fine as sand it seems. Anyways, how thick should the substrate be in my 5.5g tank? I know the article says 3" but in a small tank, that takes up a ton of room volume wise... I think..lol

I put down a thin layer of root ferts and then cover with whatever substrate to a depth of 2 inches in my smaller set-ups. Never had a problem yet.
