Someone on Aquahobby recommend to put egg crate underneath the gravel and rocks etc, mkaing the egg crate on top of the bottom part of the tank.
He said that this will help ditribute the weight more throught if having rocks in the tank, because its been know to break or crack if to many rocks were on one side?
I was planing to put a slate wall on one side like 2-3 inches hiegh going in a U Shape in the left corner of the tank and fill in the wall with more gravel to make a wall where some plants will be elevated from the rest and also I was going to put 3 things of dritwood in there, 2 pieces being rather light and then the centerpiece is not the lightest piece, around lbs, which would be place right in the middle of the tank...
I am seeing if this is really neccessary and if it does indeed help the reason Im asking is because I alreadyhave a few plants and substrate and water in there, so just wanting to know if I should take it all out and take the gravel out and then put the eggcrate down?
Thanks if anoyne can help
