How much sand do I need?

BRS suggests 1 pound of sand per 2 gallons of display tank volume on average.

 

Below is a table of common tank sizes and how many pounds of Oolite Sand is required to achieve a certain depth. Results may vary depending on the aquascaping in your tank, overflow styles, and the specific tank manufacturer. We always recommend getting a little extra sand to make sure you have enough on hand when you are filling your tank.
