You could see if the guy will take less for the rock instead of passing on it altogether.

Good point! Thanks.

Lights fell into the tank last night on to the rocks. Ouch.

Bright side: the glue is dry on the rocks! They didn't move!

Any damage to the lights? Did the wall mount give way?

The lights have a small scratch. Nothing major BUT I have yet to turn them back on lol.

Being the genius that I am, I didn't place it on a stud in the wall. As a result it fell out of the wall.

Lesson: when hanging heavy items make sure you place it on a stud not just drywall. Lol.

I'm struggling to find egg crate or even a milk crate I can disassemble. What are my other alternatives? Given that the rocks are glued in place (lol the light fell on them) should I still worry if I place them I directly on the glass?

And should I waste my money on a bag of live sand?

If find a cheap dog bed. Look inside....egg crate!!! The sand can't hurt but it's really about cost comparison I think

For some reason egg crate = milk crate in my mind. That being said I'm not certain actually egg crate would be all that effective and what about chemicals leaking from it?

Many use "egg crate" it's actually a light diffuser and be found at Home Depot.

http://m.homedepot.com/p/24-in-x-48-...ck-/202653781/

Keep in mind the price is a package of them. They do sell them individually

Thanks!!

No worries! I went into home depot and said I was looking for egg crate and they looked at me as if I had two heads.

Went back with the link and found it rapidly.
