How much live sand?
 
i have a 75g tank and want approximately 4 inches of sand. Does anyone know how many pounds I would need to add to my current amount of 40lbs of live sand?

Thanks in advance

A small correction. You do not want approx 4 inches of sand. You want AT LEAST 4 inches of sand in a 75 gallon tank. I would lean closer to 5'' for nice dentificiation within the DSB. ;-)
