I am starting to set up my 75 gallon tank. I intend to use a 3" DSB
. I put a piece of egg crate in the bottom of the tank, and spread 50lbs of sand. I then put in 90 lbs of www.hirocks.com
base rock on top of that, wiggling it to set it firmly on the eggcrate. I intend to put 40 lbs of liverocks.com LR
on top of that, and let it seed the base rock over time. I then added another 50 lbs of sand, and it occurred to me: aren't i just burying a lot of the base rock thereby removing a lot of its effectiveness? I set it on the eggcrate so it would not topple over, but now it seems ot me it should not be completely buried. anyway, any thoughts are welcome.
