Question redo my tank

I have to redo my tank, all my live rocks are shifting. Fish have made holes under the rock and all the rocks have moved the top rocks have fell and hitting the glass. Im not using any base rock, can I put something on the tank floor then place the rock on top of it.????
I need to do this today, Please I need suggestions
TIA

Just rearramge your rocks to more stable positions, and burry the base rocks as far as possible in the sand.

you can use silicone to glue your rock together but rember it is permanately on the rock so chose your lay out carefully

PVC is good solution to the stability problem and lots of people use it. I'm a little concerned about the possiblity of a detritus trap though, but I'm probably too paranoid.
