Kurt, I feel much better after reading your post! I wondered how important the whole thing really was. I'm not going to stress over it anymore: I'm going to go with 2 or 3 inches because I think that looks good and it will be enough to house some critters

Thanks everyone for your replies!

If anything, i would say go with 3"s. It would be safer and more comfortable for the critters than 2 inches, and may still be behind the boundary of all that anaerobic and aerobic bacteria stuff.
