After I showed my daughter the Jaw fish video from youtube, she really wants one. Does it really need 5-7" of substrate? We took a ruler out and measure it on our tank. 6" looks kinda ridiculous high since my 125 is only 22" deep.
You are going to always want to have some extra in the tank. They move burrows frequently. We arent talking crushed coral sized stuff either. You want regular rubble not tiny stuff. Dead coral skeletons work well but not pebble sized stuff.
