How much Fluval Stratum for 29g Tall?

Dimensions: 30x12x18

I'm having a hard time finding this info from searching. I'm ordering from amazon so I cant see that bags in person first. Because the stratum weighs so much less that normal gravel im assuming the normal lbs per gallon rule don't apply that's why im confused. Im thinking about getting one 16lb bag and one 8lb bag, will that be enough? Would like it to be about 2 1/2"-3" thick. A 29g is way tall so I would rather err on the side of caution and have it be a little ticker than thinner.

Thanks!

Shrimp tank?
IMO it doesn't really matter how many inch to us.
1 inch is enougj, enough to match to the black trim.

I use 3 bag of 5lb blue sand in a 20L gave me 2-3 inch.
A 29g isn't differ from a 20L, the W and L is the same.

16 and 8 lb should be over 3inch.

I went ahead and ordered the 16 and the 8, I can always save the 8 for other projects if I don't need it. I do hope i get 3+ out of it. I've tried a heavy planted with 2" before and it wasn't enough, root heavy plants like swords and cryps needed more.
