How much sand?

I'm trying to get some southdown (I live in LA) and was trying to approximate how much to get. How many lbs would you need for a 4" DSB in a 24x13 tank?

You must use 71 lbs of sand to acheive your desired depth.
That is the figure I get when I plug your numbers into our Sandbed Calculator.
