Def on top. Way easier to refill. Less disturbance if you just need to check feed levels. When I move mine up to the upper deep I will add a couple frames (to fill in the space left) but plan to insert them in position 2 and 9 or 3 and 7 in order to get them drawn out and have a fully drawn frame on the sides of the deep.
