Ok I really want to get this rock done. But I don't know how much force fishies and burrows use? My force test ALWAYS knocks it down. Just watched a clown knock a coral off a shelf. One...I know I'm testing it too hard......Two.....need an example please, I don't know strong all these guys are.

Thanks

Thats all i do is the wiggle test if it rocks (hehe) then i keep turning it till it's stable.
Id just stack them and not worry untill i seen a tiny little building permit in the corner of the tank

I've come to the conclusion that I can not use my Emperor 400 without a cover on my tank. There's water everywhere. I can't use the glass lids cause of the light.

I had planned on covering the tank with something eventually so fish wouldn't jump but I need to do something so the water quits jumping too. I don't want to have to redo when I get fish, but I want to make sure I don't block light either, umm or get electrocuted because the outlet is not far (my extension is GFCI but not the outlet).


Any ideas so I can still use the Emperor 400?
