They say add the rock first because if you add the sand first the rock is sitting on top of the sand. Any burrowing creature could cause your whole aquascape tumbling and possibly break your tank.

Just make sure it'll be away from the glass and try not to create "dead spots" (areas with virtually no flow) because detrius and other stuff will collect there and will give you high nitrates. Have fun!!

@ Ballin, I'm not sure! I have about 100 pounds of rock to work with so I'm just going to try and put a ledge I have the perfect rock for it. From there lots of tunnels and nooks for the fish and future corals

Yea I went into it with a similar "plan" lol. I ended up going with a 2 island type idea. Similar to the pic, which is NOT my tank, though I wish it was lol

I suppose you could use anything if you can get it to drip slow enough.
