Thanks everyone. Looking forward to seeing the pics Roka and moreso pics of your new setup including sump.

Again, there was a post in the past where the thread starter had pictures and everything. It was a great post. I'm mad at myself for not bookmarking it. Just when you need it most you can't find it.

Thanks again all.

When I set up my 120g, I covered the entire bottom of the tank with eggcrate to prevent the liverock which has many jagged and pointy edges from creating a high pressure point from the 200lbs of stacked rock and damaging the bottom glass. This also prevents rock slides from the rock settling with time from burrowing tank inhabitants like snails..etc. Then I stacked the rock on top of the eggcrate and placed all the Aragonite substrate around the outside of the rock and any area's near the perimeter of the pile that could easily be filled in to hide the eggcrate. This way there is a slight space under most of the rock and the water flow through the rock pile removes any built up detitus. It also creates a look of underground caves which many of my smaller fish like to call home.
