    Funny enough i neva had problems with cyno ect..Just lucky i guess..I also had a prob with 2 much LR but the hammer came and fixed it..I broke the rock into smaller pieces and the took out wot was 2 much..Get some epoxy and build the rocks the way u want..Do u blast ur rocks clean when u do water change..I found that helps alot..I blast my rocks everyday with the turkey baster..that way u rock stays much cleaner and keep nitrates ect down..Good luck...

    P.S torch looks stunning by the way...:thumbup:

    Lol dont be scared 2 use the hammer and some putty 2 do the scaping u want...And if the LR is 2 much then take some out..As u get new corals some of them has rock with ect...I took about 3kg out already...Lol i shuffel my tank around atleast once a month..Re-arrange everything..Some would argue that its not good for the tank ect but all my LS and Corals are very happy and healthy..And after i blasted my rocks clean i can siphon all that dirt up..Really scary how much debris u shipon out that way...:eek:Keep us posted on ur progress...:thumbup:
