Red face How much gravel/soil

Hello,

We are about to buy a 4 foot tank. The complete measures are 4 ft long, 16 inches wide and 18 inches high.

We intend to put soil + gravel. About 1'' soil and 2'' gravel. Do you know how many kg that would be?

Thanks

here's a great tool... you'll have to do the conversion from lbs to kgs though...

Substrate Calculator

It doesn't have a calculator for potting soil, but it won't take very much. 1 bag of Miracle gro organic choice gave me 1-1.5" in my 125
