Hey guys. I've decided I am going barebottom on my next tank. I know a lot of people put starboard under their rocks. However I have heard some people say detritus gets under it, and others say it doesn't, and I'm thinking its kind of expensive and is it really needed? In all my days of reefing I have never experienced a "rock slide." I've had some pretty out there rock stacks, and kept stomatopods on purpose, but never had a rock move. Of course I had sand to hold it in place also. Obviously with the stakes being a little higher I think I will use some kind of rods to hold them in place. Is insane? For background this is going to be either an 8 gal tank or a 20 long, so it wouldn't be a huge drop if something did fall.
