I am planning an aquascape for a 20 gallon Tall tank. This is my first planted tank. I have some larger rocks 8-10 inches by 6 inches and I was wondering if I need to have any padding like egg crate under them to protect the bottom of the tank. I think I read that somewhere that some people do this but I don't remember where. My plan for the tank is to do a dirted tank 1 in MGOPS with a 1 in gravel cap).

Does anyone put anything under larger rocks?

Thank you.

Alot of cichlid keepers use the egg crates due to some cichlids being diggers. It truly isnt necessary unless you just want the piece of mind. I have whole piles of rocks sitting directly on the bottom glass without any issue.
