you should use 1lb to 1.5lbs per gallon so about 37 pounds or 40 would probably be best.

You need approximately 1 to 11/2 pounds per gallon of water depending on how you want things to look the deeper the bed the better off you are with ammonia and nitrates.

This is typically your preference. I did not and wish I had because my tank was cloudy for a couple of days. Washing the sand will keep your tank from being cloudy for so long after you add it.

Most people say a pound per gallon but I don't like my sand bed to be that thick.it gets packed down and makes it harder for things to sift thru it.it is really a personal preference to the look that you like.

Is this #0 grain size: 0.1-0.5mm or #1 grain size 0.5-1.0mm? I'm asking because they sell both sizes of the same color/type of sand.
