Most use PVC piping and eggcrate to make a live rock stand. Check the war machine thread, Mekaeels 1m thread and scubas thread. They made live rock stands using these materials.

true, if you like blue and white plastic in your tank! :)

but its very true that a supported lr stand lifts the reef well and increases water flow around the LR greatly reducing detritus build up.

personally i prefer a more natural reef, buildt up of LR or bio rock....but thats just me:)

A Beautiful place!
Or you strap smaller pieces of rock with cable ties to the pipes to hide them - the cable ties will get covered by coraline and stuff in time ;)

Rock stand and then correctly shaped rocks, on top of each other or puttied (pratley putty) together.

Works great, if you go with the loose setup, make sure you don't get rock urchins or some of the stronge wrasses, they will move it around.
