I would recommend approximately 250 grams per 25 gallons for a 2 1/2"
to 3" substrate. This would be 500 grams or about 1 pound for a 55.
That is, if I got that pesky conversion stuff correct.  Sorry to mix
the measuring systems, but Duplarit laterite comes in 250 gm and 500
gm boxes, so that is a convenient amount to discuss.
