That might be a little too much, but I know that tank is designed to have a lot of horizonal space. Your substrate only needs to be 1-2 inches thick. Just pour it to about that and save the rest. It's worth holding on to the extra for another tank.

when i saw the title i was afraid it was gonna be about a fluorite geode (like you see at those fancy rock-and-gem stores. glad it's not though.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.
