I am creating a false bottom from eggcrate and need to know if I want to design it so that the water level is touching the false bottom or some distance below it?

Thanks for any help.

It depends, generally you want it bellow it so the substrate can drain. If you want to create a bog/marginal enviorment water touching the roots is fine.

And remember to cover the eggcrate with some mesh to keep your substrate in.
