    Well I'm honestly not sure if this is a common problem but I just can't stop putting my hand in my tank :( It's like im looking at youtube videos online and seeing so many awesome aquascapes and when i look at mine it looks all crappy (LOL) so practically every 2-3 days im changing the scape and I'm never satisfied with it, and the sand is lifted up and that makes me a S.O.B. LOL. So any suggestions? Really a bad habit I guess. And also for anyone who saw my "What was I thinking?" thread MY TANK IS BACK BABY WOOHOO!!!!!!:victory:

    I must have ripped my aquascape apart 10 times before It is what it is now. one time I even actually did a large waterchange built my piliars and then put all the rock back in then adding new water to the tank. I think we are all faced with this issue at some point.

    Congrats On having a Tank again...didn't follow your goodbye thread through it's entirety.

    I'm too lazy to change the scape around too much and I hate making a mess of water and having to clean the glass when I do stick my hand in there.

    buy more rock or break yours up smaller so you can achieve different shapes.

    o yeah no problem lol realized that saltwater is too precious! and as for the scape im a really picky S.O.B. so I can never- I MEAN NEVER- really be happy until i make that right scape lol. I have used a hammer and chisel to get different pieces of rock but still not sure how to do a good scape. Tried doing pillars at one point but still a little difficult since all my LR is differnt so im still trying to find a good combination of how to put things together

    Glad to hear you have your tank back. Just arrange the rocks in a way that creates caves and interesting features then let it be. There will be times when you have to take it apart to get something then do rearranging.
