How much?

So the tank is 33 gal. I thought I would slope from 1 1/2 inch to about 3 or 4 inches. Would a bag of 9 liter Amazonia I be enough? Also, should I use power sand?

1 bag would not be enough IMO, I would go for about 3-4 bags and as for the power sand, that would cost a hell of a lot

It is 25inx18inx18in. I thought it would be expensive. I also thought that I could put normal sand as a base and layer the Amazonia on top and around the sides. Would that work and cut costs?
