I kind of assumed the name was a reference to how much the equipment and hardscape cost ;P
Haha, Yeah, I know. You deciphered the real hidden meaning of the name lol. I also thought about naming it "Boulders of Burden" as I was placing the rocks in the tank, upon realizing how heavy they were, especially considering I had to repeat it several times until I got the right placement.
pile them up near/on the existing medium/small rocks at the base of your large rocks (does that make sense?).
I think I do, and yeah, you're right, the carpet will swallow up small, stranded rocks quickly. For the same reason I am worried about the "banks" of the "river" being swallowed too. I guess I would need to keep trimming the carpet in the area in between the rocks to keep it where it should.
Awesome hardscape. Very dramatic. I just checked again and that large rock still hasn't fallen over. Nicely done!
Haha I know, I need to make sure that I don't bump into it too hard while doing any maintenance, just in case. I made sure it was stable before adding the soil. Then by adding the soil it provided a bit more stability to it, but it is so big and heavy that even that is not a guarantee. As long as I am careful it should be fine. (I hope)
