New 55 gal..use egg crate under sand or no?

I have done some searches on the topic but still not really sure if I should use it or not. I plan on stocking with angelfish or cichlids, either way I will use some rocks and plants if go with angelfish. I will also be painting the background with acrylic craft paint. Just haven't decided on black or blue. The blue I picked up is cobalt blue. Anyone use that shade with CaribSea Instant Aquarium Moonlight Sand Gravel? Call me crazy but I am working on 2 tanks at once, lol. 55 gal brand new, and the 100 gal I have been trying to get up and running for about 4 years now. I finally have fish in it but I def am not thru with the aquascaping. I think I would have used the egg crate in my 100 gal cichlid, just don't know if I want to do it now that sand is already in. So.. before I add the sand to the 55 I would appreciate advice. Pros & Cons. Thanks!
