120 Gallon tanks substrate questions.

I'm going to put a new tank very soon. I decided to go with ADA Amazonian II Substrate like I've always had. I've been using them in smaller tanks 20gallon long tanks and below.

My tank is 48''Lx24''Wx24''H. It's a 120 gallons tank. I want to achieve a completely flat foreground with at least 3'' inches high of substrate.

Anyone know how many 9 liter bags of ADA Amazonian II Substrate will I need?

Much appreciated. Trying to find the cost of Total Substrate and budget in the plants and so forth.

Thanks
Jase

48x24x3 inches gives you 3400 cubic inches you need to fill. Each 9L bag of Aquasol is 550 cubic inches. So, 6-7 bags.

Thanks! Somehow my calculations went all wrong and I was looking at the ball part of Eight 9L bags. I will purchase Eight 9L bags just to be safe. Much appreciated to confirm the correct calculations!
