LR and CC question

I have a 125 SW with CC. I know.....should have used DSB!! However I have a question of I have about 37 lbs of LR. When people vacumn there CC, Do I need to move the LR around to get under it as some of the LR are laying against each other to create hiding holes and tunnels for the fish. Or should I just vacumn the other parts around it and get as much as I can?
Thanks

IMO, you need to try to get under the rock, or it will become a serious nutrient sink and possibly a source of hydrogen sulfide. This may seem extreme, but what I would do, would be to remove the rock and the reaquascape putting the LR directly on the glass and fill in around it with the cc, that way you don't have to worry about getting under it anymore, and all the cc will be available for vacuuming.

Great idea. Thanks for the input. I think I will do this as well as take out some of the CC as I have about 2-3 inches in there. Would like to have only about 1-2 inches....easier to vacumn.
