How much BDBS in a 75 gallon

Will be getting a Aqueon 75 gallon tank soon. How deep should BDBS be for a low tech planted tank depth wise. I will get the medium grade of BDBS to work with. The tank will be mostly a Tetra tank an 2 Angels if they can survive in the DBDS. Tank will have Tidal HOB 110 and a Tidal 55 HOB as a back up. Feedback greatly appreciated


Thank you Bill

I think I use about 2.5 bags in my 75s. Not positive though, its been awhile. Better get 3 just to be on the safe side

125g - Planted SA Community, Firemouths & Acaras
90g - High Tech Planted
20g - low tech planted

Ya I used 2.5 bags which gave me a depth of just under 3". As @burr740 mention get 3 bags.

There will be no reason at all that any fish will not survive with BDBS.
