JUST BOUGHT A NEW FRESHWATER TANK AND AM TRYING TO SET THE SCENE BEFORE ADDING FISH ETC. I HAVE GRAVEL AND I HAVE SET 2 NICE LIGHT COLOURED SLATE STONE AGAINST EACH OTHER, I HAVE USED THE GRAVEL TO PACK AROUND THE BOTTOM OF THE ROCKS. IT FEEL PRITTY SECURE TO ME BUT IS THERE ANY DANGER OF THE FISH KNOCKING THESE OVER. ALSO I HAVE A FILTER/HEATER UNIT IN THE BACK CORNER OF MY TANK, I PLAN TO DISCUISE THIS WITH PLANT. ARTIFICIAL OR REAL???? ANY ADVANTAGE OR DISADVANTAGES. ALSO I HAVE SEEN OTHER PEOPLES TANKS WHICH HAVE BUBBLES COMING FROM UNDER THERE GRAVEL MAKES IT LOOK ALOT BETTER IN MY OPINION HOW DO I ACHIEVE THIS AFFECT?????
ANY ADVICE WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED

most freshwater fish are fine and wont knock over rocks, unless you have bigger goldfish or cichlids. I would not put the heater behind decorations or anything as this will not allow the water to disperse from around the heater and leave a warm pocket of water in that area and not the entire tank. Unless you have a power head or great water circulation in your tank I would not hide the heater.
