Aqua Soil volume

If my calculations are correct (hah!), it looks like it would take about 10 nine liter bags of aquasoil to produce 3" of substrate in a 125 (72x18 footprint.)

Sound about right or way off?

I never was very good at math . . .

Sláinte!
Cindy

They have a chart on the website telling you how much you need.

I used 3.5 bags for my 60 gallon tank (36 x 19 x 20").

Hope that helps!

also, if that doesn't help i know there are calculators for fluorite. One 9-liter bag of AS = 2 bags of fluorite.

Thanks Bill! I believe I'll drop them a note about making that chart a bit more easily accessible.

Sláinte!
