substrate for 20L

I'm planning to setup a new 20L for shrimps keeping. Does anyone know how much azoo plant grower bed or fluval shrimp stratum I would need?

Get Seachem Flourite. I believe I bought 15 pounds of it. Any substrate you get should be around that weight, though.

15 to 25lbs should do it. Check out this "substrate pros/cons" thread

FSS you will need about 2.5 bags of the 8.8 pound one to get you a good base
