Can anyone tell me the best way to get height from substrate using rocks.
Slope the substrate low to high from the front to the back of the tank. Place rocks on the highest areas. Point rocks so they have angles and dimensions.
Or are you asking how to use rocks under the substrate to maintain the slope of the design?
Im looking to do rocks, gravel, more rocks, more gravel. Maybe 6 inches high.
Another question are you referring to using retaining walls to stop the substrate from slipping.
My suggestion would be do some research and post a few photos of what you are referring to.
Heres an idea of what i would like to achieve.
I want to make height from the left sloping down to the right.
As there are a lot of rocks on the LH side its impossible to see how the the substrate was shaped.
You can use stockings filled with gravel to give you more height. Or place the rocks then back fill.

Thats it! Thank you for taking your time finding this link.
Hi Goldminnow Not a problem
A simple Google found these including two of my photos, from the Aquascape I pulled down earlier this year.
1 I used pieces of slate to stop slippage.
2 Rocks were placed in front of the slate as well
