How much gravel for a planted tank?


Recommended Posts

I use this calculator it's very useful.


A Calculator to determine amount of substrate needed.

For a 75g @ 3" substrate depth it is 144lbs


80 pounds would give you around 1.75" 


I like 3" in my planted setups. If you want to go less I think success will depend on the type of plants/roots you choose.
