speaking of which, i can access my picture from there:
its ok, def not as nice as the others posted, but it does have a lot of space for the fish to swim through
Nice what light fixture is that?
It's wavepoint 4x54w t5 ho then added moonlight. Thanks!
not a 55, but a mini elos. thing about aquascaping for me, is i tend to place the rocks into a natural formation, as in letting the rocks piece together like a puzzle, as if they were meant to be one single piece/formation/aquascape. of course, this involves lots of twisting and turning and rotating, but imo, it creates a natural form. lots of trial and error. you can then build on this idea by doing what MoJoe said (bigger rocks as a base, then building up using smaller pieces).
probably would be good if you had a mental picture of what it is you would like to see in your own tank (cave, minimal, islands, deepwater wall, overhangs, etc.) hth
Heres mine, its 55 gallons...Nothing is touching the glass, its all stack without glue. Its like putting together a puzzle.
Looks awesome. Nice work!
Great Aquascaping guys/gals! Here is mine although it's not a 55. It's a 46 BF with about 65 lbs. 30 BRS dry and 35 from my old 24 Nano. It's been running about 2 mos.
I ended up with a "wall" kind of look but I was happy with it. Lots of flat shelves to place corals and I also gave myself a few ledges with "shaded" areas for less light demading corals. I have eggcrate on the bottom, used reef epoxy and have 2 or 3 smaller rocks against the back glass.
Nice tanks everyone.
Here's my 29g. I have 2 islands... an arch on the left(CB angel likes to swim through it) & the right hand side overhangs the left a bit, but they do not touch. It was mostly all dry rock when I got the stuff. This is about 15lbs, but I will be getting some more to add to it. No corals yet.
I recently painted the back glass with flat black Krylon spray-paint. Looks much better.
