How many bags of Flourite for a 29 gallon tank?

Basically what the title said. I'm thinking three bags, but I thought I'd ask first.

I would think 2 would be plenty for a 29.

There is a calculator for this on the seachem website http://www.seachem.com/Products/prod...ouriteRed.html its at the bottom of the page. You can specify the dimensions of the tank and how deep you want the substrate. It does round up to the next full bag (1.5 bags = 2 bags). For my 55 it recommended 2 bags for 2 inches depth. I put some sand in with mine and left it at one bag.

Have you ever seen a French Ninja? NO because they are sneaky.

2 bags got me 2", so I'd get 3 bags if you want 3" or some slope.

In my 29, I used two bags and I have about 2-3 inches of substrate everywhere in the tank.
