While cleaning up/battling some brown algae I found that the back wall of my tank doesn't have enough flow to it. I also realized that my LR
is ontop of my DSB
. There are a few pieces that touch the bottom for support but since this is the first time I'm using a DSB
, I never thought the area under the rock would become anaerobic. After reading a bunch more about it, I still want to move some of the rocks away from the glass. However should I more more rock into the DSb
at this point or use some pvc
pipe to help "lift" the rock out of the DSB
thus lessening the chance for Hydrogen sulfide/anaerobic areas? or should I be ok? if the rock went anaerobic how long does the sulfide take to dissapate in the tank?
I have looked at many of the tanks in the picture area and most have many rocks ontop of the DSB
, but I want to double check before I proceed with anything.
1 minor note since the tank was done cycling, I dropped a partial cleanup crew in and also a clownfish. So keep that in mind.
Also about 1 week ago I did a massive cleaning of the tank and moved the rocks around a bunch, didn't have any problems there. Rocks are stable since they are resting against the few rocks that touch the bottom and a few pointer edges are on the back wall.
Am I over-reacting?
pictures might help so I'll go do that.
