Power sand really hasn't been proven to be worth much.

"Normally used" is very subjective, it will matter on what your scape is, how deep you want the soil, and whether you need to build up certain sections or not.

It's a pain in a butt once it starts to litter your tank.

I used one bag of ps m and 2 bags of soil.

There's a handy chart on aqua forest's website under substrate

Alright well no power sand then.. So three bags is probably the best idea. Extra never hurts I suppose

3 should be good, 4 for extra depth.
