Can you make some H brackets to mount the light on, you mount the brackets same way as there mounts then attach theres to them
Uhmm, how to make H brackets? I take it they are shaped like the letter H lol, but that's as far as I can manage.

It is fun (sorta) it's the can's of worms that keep opening. LOL. And no I won't collect stamps, my mother used to collect Green Stamps, and coupons, and we had food stamps too. I'll collect coins instead (that I could spend of course).

50 lbs base in tank and 50ish to go :-)

LOL, No I'm not cycling yet.

I am finally putting my rock in tonite, I have about 1/2 of it in and been working steady for about 4 hours, kinda hard to see cause so cloudy with all the stirring up I'm doing. Water not high enough to run filter yet to help clear it up. Hope to have a pic of my aquascaping tonite, or more accurately in the morning cause it'll probably take another 3 or four hours. For this time anyway LOL, always room for changes.

Question for anyone......

How far down from the water level should the rock be? I don't know how high to place the various corals and such yet so a rough idea would be great.

Thanks

I have rock going up to 75% of the height of the back wall in places. And some in front of that that isn't as high. Gives me different levels to place different light corals.

Thanks. I've been kinda working from higher in back to lower in front and trying to make a lagoon type opening/cave opening. Trying to leave bout 3" in front for swimming and the "lagoons/caves" to swim in and out. Trying to leave a couple of "caves" open in various areas that they can swim through.

Is that 75% from sand to water level, or glass bottom to water level?

Sounds like a plan. I have a neat overhang that the tangs love to swim through. Once you like it dont worry, you'll change your mind. LOL

LOL, Already changing as I go. Taking a break to read through and let water settle a little. Want to get more rock in before I add the last little bit of RO/DI I have cause I don't want to "overflow", especially since I don't have an overflow or sump yet.

So for the last 2 hours or so, I've been aquascaping by feel lol, since can't see. Let's "see" how I did when it clears hehehe, this aught to be funny.
