12 Gal Long ADA powder

I am planning a 12 gal long iwagumi. I will have an HC carpet and plan on using ADA amazonia powder only. I will have 15-20 lbs of seiryu and I want to know how much aquasoil I need for room to have to nice slopes if I desire? Also will if I open a bag of aquasoil and play around with it and the hardscape how long can I leave it in the aquarium dry? Will it go bad if just sitting in the tank dry?

You need one bag of aqua soil ( 9 l) and it doesn't go bad if you play around for a few days.cheers

I don't know if it helps with new AS but I let used stuff stay in a bag dry for more than a few months, maybe 4 or so, still was the same as before.
