How deep & how many bags of netlea (9L) substrate for my ~30 gal?

My tank dimensions are roughly:

36" L x 12.5" W x 15.5" H

and according to http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/conv...calculator.php that means the tank is approximately 30 gallons give or take.

I'm making this tank a breeding tank for Crystal Red Shrimp and I was wondering how deep I should make the substrate (the substrate will be Netlea soil). And how many bags of the 9L soil will I need for the tank bottom.

Thanks for reading. Replies are greatly appreciated.
