If this is a good option, how much should I get for a 60 gallon cube measuring 24x24x24?
Just a caution, as this is specifically intended for African cichlids one can assume they mean rift lake cichlids, and the sand might well be calcium-based to add hardness and raise the pH, and/or have salts in it. Which is the opposite of what you want for angelfish that are soft, acidic water fish.
