for the extra rock, do you mean in a line with the arch so all the rocks would make a straight line?

No, I meant once you make the arc, slide that rock on one side of the arc so that it sits on the sand, then the arc will only be open on one side, like a small cave for your fish to hide in.

Haha i did exactly what mr. X said only i did it in my garage. And instead of using a hammer, i just swung the towel around in the air and then smashed it against the floor. Sure did break those huge pieces up real good.

lol, yeah, it is hard to manage large pieces of rock in such a small set up. Yes, the rock serves two purposes, it filters the water naturally. It's second purpose is to provide a hiding spot for your fish, they can stress if they have no place to feel secure, this can adversely affect their health.

Hard to tell, wait till the sand settles down a take a good close up picture of it. Then post it on the Identification section.
