Finding the Volume of a Fish Tank (filling the fish tank with sand)

I need an equation or equations to help me find out how many pounds of sand I will need to fill my fish tank and so I can determine how much it will cost me. The tank measures 71 inches in length and 18 inches in width. I want to know how much sand I will need for a 3, 4, 5, and 6 inch base.
