It really doesnt matter where you put it. Whatever looks best to you will be fine if your tank has plenty of flow. They are filter feeders so you might want to get some marine snow or kent phytomax. I have both products and they are great.

DT`s is a good food also. But they will feed whatever is in the tank.
