    Update.. added false percula clown yesterday.. he is really enjoying the tank so far

    I find that my camera makes every more full of red or something. The clown is a nice orange with a light shade of black on his top half

    Nice, apologies for not reading the whole thread, but is that your first fish?

    @viper357 I unfortunatly lost clown to lymphocystis covering his gills. And then skunk from HLLE.. but all problems sorted.. had alot of cyano.. bought a sea hare and boom.. it was gone.. thinking of replacing front panal as scratches irritate me alot

    Hi all. I have been neglecting this thread a bit.. no losses since my last update.

    But big plans for the next couple of weeks. New sand and new front pane of glass.


    Could you guys please give me your thoughts on my current aquascape? (Last post)
    Not too sure about it

    Personally I would not have kept my structure low and long. I would have gone for a bit more height but that is because I knew I was going to keep sps corals. You should google aquascapes to give you some ideas as tastes differ between individuals. :)

    I agree you might need to get some more height. I would make 2 islands, one as high as you can manage (minimum two thirds of the way up compared to tank height) and then a gap until a shorter island. Try and make 2 focal points, the one on the high island, a third of the way down from the top of the tank and a third of the way from the one side. Then the other focal point on the other island a third of the way up from bottom of tank and a third of the way from the side of the tank (opposite side to other focal point on other island).

    Also see if you can play around with negative spaces, so scape according to the gaps and caves that the rocks form and not according to the shape the actual rock is.
