ADA Amazonia question

I recently acquired a used 120-p and I am gathering info on what I will need.

How many bag's of Amazonia I 9 liter will I need for my 120-p?

Powersand? do I really need it? I have some in my nano and every time I rescape I pull up tons of PS and it looks horrible

And how about the other stuff -Additives, bactor or whatever it's called. Do I really need this stuff?

Thanks
Mott

Can't say how much you'd need, but Im using Amazonia I without any other ADA products, and I love the results.

I don't think you need all that other stuff.

Thanks for the response!

I didn't think there was a real need for that other stuff, now I just need to know how many bags to order...anyone?

Isn't there a substrate calculator somewhere?

ADG website says 4 - 9L bags. I'd shoot for 5 myself. Never hurts to have a little extra and shipping one bag is not cost effective.

Robert
