What if I added an inch or so of aragonit sand on top of the current cc? I don't think I have enough cc to make a dsb, so I would loose the denitrification of the substrate. right??

Also, I would have to remove all the LR too get to the plenum plate.. I am getting really confused..

Take a look at my pics in the gallery.. I have a sick xenia that is only half open..

In your gallery, is the Xenia near the power head? If so, they don't really like to be blown on directly, that could be what is making it not open.
