So if I have a bed 6" or 7" is that going to be harmful as stated in the earlier messages.. or will this be a safe height for the substrate?
That will be fine. From Dr. Ron Shimeks article (click here to read it),
"The surface area for bacteria and microalgae in live rock or on other surfaces is insignificant compared to the area in a sand bed four or more inches in depth. "
Boldface is my editing.
