In one of your Newbie articles you mentioned glueing acrylic dowels to the bottom of live rock to keep if off the bottom of the tank and expose as much of the rock as possible to the water column. Would it be okay to have egg crate sitting on say 2" diameter dowels just below the sand line? Also by elevating the rock don't you run the risk of fish excavating under the rock?
Thanks
PS BTW the Triad is not an electrical device or a Chinese gang -- it's the three cities area of NC comprising Greensboro, Winston-Salem, and High Point (aka the "Furniture Capital of the World" )
