Glass Bottom Protection

Guys/Gals,

What do you like to put on the floor of your tanks, prior to substrate, to protect the glass from scratches and potential cracking from rocks?

You can use eggcrate. Cut to size and keep an inch or so away from the perimeter so it isn't visible. You can also place more on top of eachother to add height and use smaller rocks etc.

Nothing!! Just be sure any rocks are placed directly on the glass and are stable.
