some help needed

I was wondering how much aquasoil I should get for a 20g long to get a 2-4" bed, keep in mind Ill also be using 3-9 liters of sand (which kind, how much) to make a sandy channel in it. also, should I put anything under the ADA aquasoil (like peat?)

You could try this https://www.plantedtank.net/substratecalculator.html I would put aquasoil as regular gravel because aquasoil and gravel are kinda close to the same size unless your using powder type. For powder type just use the sand setting, Then you can use another calculator to convert pounds to liters.

Shoot Jeff @ ADG an e-mail. He'll give you the whole low down on ADA, and how much.

(believe me you won't need peat)
