    Agree, but what was used to make it solid and stable? It looks like, any crab can destroy this beauty. In my opinion, I am missing a cave at the left and the top from the left side is very flat. Otherwise, perfect scaping.

    Im so confused when it comes to scaping my 1.2*800*600. I just ended up dumping all the LR on a platform I made from eggcrate.

    it can get frustrating but you need to take fish species to be kept and the amount of coral you want to keep into consideration.. this is the way i rationalise my thinking because i also tend to get over excited and exhausted.. im currently thinking about doing a pvc pipe structure and applying clay to it in order to getting a branching and arch effect.. i could pressurise this structure and drill holes in it to divert flow to almost everywhere.

    the problem with these plans is you need to have a good idea of what you want the end product to look like...
