AquaScaping Looks Good??? ****UPDATED****

Does my AquaScaping look good??? There is currently about 95lbs of LR and about 15lbs of LS... Opinions please...

BTW this is a 55gal Tank and all LR and LS was Purchased thru LiveRocks.com except 11lbs of LR purchased thru LFS..

I would like honest opinions about this please..

TIA,
James

First off Thanks..

Second.. All it takes is a little bit of patience and a very picky person like myself..

Honestly I would like others opinions as I am very picky and not quite sure if I like it myself yet or not.. So I have decided before the wife kills me to ask the general public and that will be my decision....

I just patiently stacked them.. I dont believe in using glue or other methods.. Seems unnatural to me.. Over time the Coraline Algae should "Glue" these rocks together to mimic the typical coral reef.. Its time now to let the tank balance out that load of LR and prepare and research my corals that I would like...

BTW I think the ppl over at Liverocks .com kinda give you an assortment of rock that easily stacks.. I was much more impressed with their rock than anywhere else..

i dont like the idea of glueing them either, i think your right that they will grow together over time.

I think it looks great!! Now, far be it for a freshy to say that! It's true...I've roamed into "the other" forum (gasp!)

Seriously though it does look great, and as lor said, lots of little places where lots of fish can claim to be king, lol.

Personally, it looks a little unstable to me. Most of your bridges look precariously perched and there is not any anchor rock around some to keep them from falling in the case of a sand shift or a fish accidentally bumping it. That said, there is only so much you can tell about the stability of the structure from a pic. I also think it is a little to "busy", to may arch ways and bridges, for my taste, I don't think you'll see a natural structure quite like that. The impotant thing to remember is do you like it...my taste and your taste are bound to be different, so go with what you like your the one that is going to be enjoying it
