You want 3'' of aragonite sand. A single 25 pound bag should be plenty.
I was asking what they had bought for theres. I'm going to try and do a 20gal tank. What size powerhead would be needed for that size? I'll also have a filter running for movement also. I went to a LFS today and they sell LR for 3 dollars a pound and it's cured. Sand is 25 a bag and I think it's 25 pounds? So I take it 2 is needed for a 20gal high?
