It seems easily stackable, porous, and has lots of holes! I think it will work nicely!

Ibrahim, how long did it tank for your shipping?

I mean it's up to you for the eggcrate. I don't know what it's benefits are but you just cut it to fit your tank and pile on the sand. Well goodnite I've got school tomorrow and it's 1:30am lol

Ouch! Sorry man! Ill just keep talking, and you or anyone else can answer whenever!

Now, do you lay out the crate flat, or keep it in whatever the heck that shape is haha!
If i dont use crate, do i actually put the rocks on the glass then put the sand around? I dont like that!! Is that only for tunnling fish?

Can i add all the sand then put the whole rock formation on top, and try to dig it in as best i can?

Just be cautious of it falling. I regret putting my sand in first and then the rock. Half In sounds right to me, it would keep it stable without having the possibility of cracking the glass.
