Just push it under with your hand. It will go under with a gentle wave of the hand. Make sure your rock pile is sturdy and allows plenty of water flow to go through it. Don't just pile them in a tight pile.

You can see light from the other side and I rinsed the sand and it helped with hard clumps probably where he didn't dry it and put a lid on the bucket

I wish I could stack the rock up higher I'm just afraid it will fall. How much sand space should I have?

You need more rock. Double that I would guess. How much sand space do you need? What will you be placing on the sand?

Just keep the rock away from the glass so you can clean it easily, and make sure it's stacked well so it doesn't come crashing down and kill things. Also, flow is important. Try to arrange the rock so there are as little low flow areas as possible. You might need a second power head on the right, facing opposite.

Ok I will get another. There isn't any hurry my heater isn't working right. Its a recalled stealth I figured I would use it. The manufacturer is sending me a new heater just figured I would use this one until I got the new one. The water is still cloudy this morning
