a pyramid of biomass is a better diagram to use.A pyramid of biomass shows the total mass of organisms at each stage of a food chain. In general, all producers have a higher biomass than the primary consumer, so a pyramid will always be produced. The total energy (and biomass) present at a lower tier of the pyramid, must be greater than the higher tiers in order to support the energy requirements of the subsequent organisms.

The pyramid shows the total biomass of organism at each stage.
i.e. the total biomass in -producers >that in primary consumers>secondary consumers..
