Helpful video..definetly will use this ideas for my next tank!! Also, what kind of rock did you use?
you can use any type of reef compatible rock you want.
I used Caribsea reef rock because i got it for very cheap. I hear reefcleaners.com has nice dry rock
you posted it and didnt tell me great job though!
Nice design! So you use Caribsea, I'll try those next time.
great aquascaping but with such a large surface area in contact with the bottom you will get a lot of detritus build up an have a lot of dead spots underneath the rock, might i suggest adding 3-4 'feet' to the bottom to that it allows more flow from under the rock and employs less surface area in contact with the substrate. The use of 3-4 'feet' will still allow for good stability and good anchors that will hold the whole structure up well.
actually thank you for pointing this out! one thing i wanted to mention but forgot is to place ceramic or agrocrete tiles under the base. it allows for the flow under the base of the rock and also raises the base up higher from the bottom or the sandbed
Nice job. Very informative.
Really liked it too! Like many said, wish I had this before setting my tank up. I went with huge rocks but never took the time to split them or anything. Will buy more rock in the future with this construction method in mind. Your techniques are very well explained and the end results are very nice.
Now you got me wanting to re-do my crappy scape.
