I see they sell this substrate in liters instead of kg or pounds. I am looking at getting either fluorite at 16$ for 7kg or Aqua Soil - Amazonia 2 at 16 $ for 3 liters.

Is 1 bag of fluorite = to 1 bag of Aqua Soil? If not how do they compare.

I'm going to be setting up a 90 gallon, how many 9 liter bags do I need?

*note that a a 9 liter bag of is approximately 20 lbs.
BTW go with original Amazonia. I tried both original is better than II. If you water is soft, cloudiness will not be an issue.

If your 90 gallon is the standard dimensions you'll need either 7 bags of Flourite or 4 9L bags of Aquasoil.

7 * $16 = $112 Flourite
4 * $28 = $112 Aquasoil

For the same price go Aquasoil hands down. I've used both substrates and wouldn't ever go back to flourite again.
