Question Aqua Soil Questions

I'm starting a new nano tank more towards the mid-tech range, and I am leaning toward getting aqua soil. Does it need to be capped at all? For those who have it, How easy is it to scape? And would one 3 liter bag be enough for a 13.7" x 11.8" tank?

So much to learn!

It doesn't need to be capped... lol

It's a nutrient rich substrate in itself. It's really nice to scape with, just spray it with water and it stays pretty well.

I don't really know your tanks translation into gallons, but I'd get a 9 liter bag (better value) unless you want to scape a very small nano (~3 gallons). A 9 liter bag let me scape a Mini-S with a 5 inch slope in the back and 2 inch in the front, and a 3 inch deep 10 gallon tank.
