I think a DSB is 6" plus but I'm not 100 per cent sure

I have mine in the sump in the 65g and in the overflow section in my 125g. I don't think it matters as long as its submerged somewhere.

Hmm I don't think my sandbed is quite 6" but its kinda close.

I added in the last 50lbs of sand, 50lbs of base rock and filled it to about halfway. i am still churning out ro water, I'd like to get another 28g into it tonight, then I can finish filling it tomorrow. It takes almost 6 hours to make a garbage can of water. grrr......lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

a DSB is 4"-8" of sand

as for the heater put it sideways in the return section of your sump. its an aqueon i'm guessing since you said you use them on all your tanks, so they are safe to submerge totally

as for the sump levels and keeping extra water in it so you can go on a weekender- implement an auto top off...IMO/IME it's a must have piece of equipment.
you would have a tank of fresh water somewhere, could be in the stand, or a closet down the hall, if you have a strong enough pump.
i like the JBJ ato's myself. redundant switches and easy as pie to set up.
just set it and forget it. the only thing about them is that an annoying alarm goes off when the switch is set off, until it shuts back off again.
some folks disable the alarm, some don't.

sink the rock deep in the sand till it hits the glass. more bacteria growth in the sand this way and the water flows down there better so the DSB can benifit more
