i payed 75 dollars for 2x9L bags and that includes shipping. i ended up with more than i really needed.Well I spent 18.00 for a 50# bag of soilmaster select then I purchased 4 bags of eco complete for 115.00 and the Amazonia ran me 120.00 so in substrate I have 253.00
But I just today finished the canopy and installed my lights, I should have it in the house in a few weeks and then I'll know exactly how much of each substrate I actually need... and left over will be used in other tanks down the road...
Is this more or less than you expect to pay?
Doing the calc for my tank it said I need 69 liters of substrate at 36.00 for a 9 liter bag of Amazonia I would be looking at close to 275.00 but remember until I actually set up the tank I'm just guest-a-mateing.
