    Hi All,

    Please rate my scaping, not my camera skills, I am worse than Trev with the camera!!!!!!

    But please any comments as I want to finish before the fish go back in a few weeks time.

    Amazing scaping , giving it 8/10!:thumbup:

    If I may be so bold, and really it's just my own taste, The center pillar looks a little thin in the middle, if I really must leave a comment I would say just place a rock just on the left side of the big coral in the middle of the pillar. That would give the more rounded effect, but it's just my 2c. Anyway it really looks awesome

    Thanks bud, lol, I need the other 2/10, think the problem is there is too many small corals, you mean like this?

    hey buddy, scapping is good. Just the center pillar looks unnatural. As well as the spaces between the 3 pillars, looks like a "W" in the 1st pic. So I guess just change the shape of the center pillar and maybe move it closer to either side so it will not look evenly spaced. Just my thoughts :) .. Nice to see someone trying something different :)

    And that's exactly what it is, space for lots of corals and even more space for fish to swim.

    That's what makes it so different bud. ;)

    scaping looks cool. I'd leave it like that, as I know you gonna add more rocks over time, especially favites. Good scaping for what you want to achieve

    thanks for the comments guys, the good the bad and the honest comments. I have sat infront for a while, and I think the pics really don't show the scaping well enough, they can't portray the 3rd dimensional effect. The only thing I don't like, is there is too much "brown" from the softies etc, all the corals with colour, I have raised, even at the top of the centre coloumn, there is alot of mushrooms, I have raised them to try and see if the queen wont get to them (appreantly it helps), I have a few montis as well which will hopefully grow now soon, so that will add more and also ledges for the angels, I think the tank just needs to grow into itself, but I wish I could show you guys what it really looks like.
