it doesnt matter when you put in the sand, and depending on how much rock or even a few pieces if they are heavy dictates if you would need eggcrate.

I have a glass tanks and always put in egg crate, then rocks, then sand. I have mbuna and they are always digging in the sand, and if you put the rocks on the sand it could make them unstable.

You don't NEED the eggcrating in the aqrylic tank, but it does help rockwork stability.
