Substrate Calculator

* Special thanks to the following for providing information on their substrates:
Brightwell Aquatics, Caribsea, EcoSystem Aquarium, and Kent Marine.

This calculator estimates the volume and weight of substrate required to fill a rectangular aquarium to a given height. Several common substrates can be selected from or a custom substrate density can be entered.

Note that the "Desired Substrate Height" is the height above the bottom pane of the aquarium, not including it.
