46G Bowfront - amount of AS:)

Hi all,
I am in the process of setting up a 46G Bowfront, heavily planted with some fish.
I am trying to figure out how much aquasoil I need? According to the website and approximating to my tank, I need 3 9L AS bags and 2 power sand bags - 2L each. Now I understand the PS is worthless... so in its absence, will the 3 9L bags of Amazonia be sufficient?
Thanks for reading...

More than likely the 3 9L bags will be enough. They said I needed 4 9L bags and 2 bags of sand for my 75 gal, but I opted not to get the sand. The 4 bags were a perfect amount.

I used 3 10lb bags of AS on a 54 bowfront and had a 3-3.5" deep slope in the back. 3 should be fine

You've got Schultz Aquatic Soil, he's talking about ADA AquaSoil- two very different substrates.
