Between 1 and 2 pounds per gallon.

FYI if you like black, Black Diamond Blasting material size 20/40 is good for aquariums and costs $8 for 50 pounds.

Use this calculator to give you a more precise estimate, based on the tank's dimensions: http://www.plantedtank.net/substratecalculator.html

You can find the Black Diamond at places like Tractor Supply, Northern Tool, etc.

Thanks for the link, according to that program i need 20 to 21 pounds if i want 2" depth depending on the substrate i choose.Is that black diamond media good for live plants if i were to decide to use live plants, and is it safe for bettas.I do like that it is black my betta is mostly red i think it would be a nice contrast.
