ada amazonia

Hi

Im thinking of getting some amazonia substrate for my 10g cube. Question is do i need a 3l or 9l bag for a decent coverage on a tank that size?

thanks.

Multiply in cm length x width x height of the substrate you want then divide that by 1000. This will tell you how many litres you need.

I am guessing you would want the 9l bag, although you will only need 6 or so for a 2" (5cm) level.

3L bag would be very thin. You could order 2 bags of 3L. But why not have a bit extra :P

I bought the small bag for my 3G and it was a little much but I sloped my substrate. You'll definitely need more for a 10g.

Better hurry up buying ADA products, as time is running out! price change will be effective Jan. 2011 AFAIK.

I used 2 x 3L bags for my Mini-L (8.5-ish gallons). I'd get the 9L in case you want a thicker substrate. 3L will definitely not be enough.
