better to put it on the glass. otherwise the sand can shift and the rock and move, and it could topple down and crush fish, corals, inverts, or damage the glass.

I used to put mine on "egg crate" that is used in lighting but when I redid my reef I got rid of it. I put mine on my LS and made sure it was pushed down pretty far.

I added 1/4 of the sand, then rock. With the other 3/4s on top.
