75g aquascape help.

I know this looks very amateur and need to move it around. Your feedback would be appreciated!

I was thinking about piling on either side and leaving some open space in the middle for corals and what not.

Regards,

T

I would pile up one side with caves and shelfs to put corals, and then a sand river in the middle and more pile of caves on the opposite side. It would look pretty sick, but i like the caves tou have now

So ya i would do what you said, but put caves on the sides and not the middle. But you will prob need more live
Rock

Ya....we got her when she was a little tiny thing and she's done very well. We had our ich battle but she's doing get now! Im pretty happy about that.....that was a major pain.

And yes I prob need more live rock and I'm at a point now where I can afford it so I'll hit up craigslist tomorrow and probably gran another 30-40lbs tops. I like Ur idea but I think Ur right when u say I need more to pull that off. I'm looking for some Bali rock.

Or if you get a 50 pound box of baserock from reefcleaners that'd be enough as well.

You might also get the rock off the sides of the tank for cleaning room. It will get covered with algae. I leave just enough room for my mag float to slide through

I've unfortunately realized this when i started having the slime algae problem. I couldn't get to a couple spots bc the rock was too. Ur absolutely correct.

There's a guy on craigslist selling his liverock at $2 per lb so I'm going to check it out. If the rock is ****, then I'll just go with reefcleaner non-live rock and wait till that rock arrives to re-scape. I think I'm leaning towards building up the sides and leaving some open space in the middle and front for corals. I just hate the thought of rescaping and kicking up all the sediment but I know I'm unhappy with the current setup.
