    How much ADA Aqua Soil Amazonia for a 240L 4ft tank Will a 9l and 3l bag be enough?

    And is the Green Mahine the only place that sells it? anywhere cheaper?

    They're the exclusive distributor, nonone else has any ada products in the UK. I know what you mean about the cost! I'd suspect it's no where near enough soil, I've used 18l in a 1'x2' tank. There's the new columbo substrate of the market which is about a fiver cheaper for a liter more.

    I used 2 x 9l of ADA & 10l of JBL aquabasis+ to bulk it out and it gave me a 2" - 6" front to back coverage. So you should be looking for around 25-30litres.

    Did you mix it or put the JBL aquabasis at the bottom...would the ADA not fall through?

    pics on there^
    And the JBL is like soil, so there is no chance of the ADA falling through.
