Can't remember how much sand

Ok. I feel stupid because I can't remember how much sand I need to buy.

I can't remember how much is already in my tank but I know it is not deep enough for both visual and sand rooting needs

I have a 72 gallon bow front, 4 feet wide. Depth is between 12 and 15 inches depending on area of the bow.

How many pounds for a good 1 and 1/2 - 3 inches? Want to create slopes/ledges, slopes will have gravel mixed in underneath to help with weighing down plants.

I am thinking around 75-80 pounds, does this sound right to you?
