Re: Positioning Driftwood...

Okay, now you guys really have me worried.  I have a big piece of driftwood
on a piece of slate that I put directly on the tank bottom of my 50-gal
planted tank.  Are you telling me I need to dismantle the tank and put
egg-crate between the slate and glass?  Please say no.
