    Personally I like the island/bridge look with arches for fish to swim through. Also like to have room on the outside of scape for free swimming room.

    I really like your scape Travis. What is that beautiful fish right in the front center?

    I am really liking the different Aquascapes. I thought that I would have been doing a rock wall on my 55g, but I may be going with the island and bridge look. The minimalist look seems to make the tank seem barren for a reef tank. But I have not made my mind up yet.. So lets see them Aquascapes. They are all looking good and they are giving me good ideas.

    It's not that impressive, as it will be changed greatly by the coral that will grow on it.

    Every new aquarium I make I find myself wishing my aquascape was more defined by the corals rather than the rock, so I suggest building a low-lying rock structure that will be easy to fill in with corals. In mature tanks, you can barely see the rock anyway.
