Converting wet/dry

Ok, so after much research, I have learned that I should be avoiding the use of bio-balls, opting for LR instead. I have attached a pic of my sump, which is AGA Megaflow 3. The pic shows the grate on top of which the bio balls used to be located. Because the water line is only about 2 inches above where the grate rests, making half of the bio-balls above water (dry) and half submerged, I obviously can't add much LR in this area. Do you think it is a good idea to take the grate and turn it 90 degrees, resting against the bottom of the tank, creating a whole separate area that I can fill with more LR or make a fuge?

Not a bad idea. Or you could just take the grate out all together.

Do it right the first time.
