Thanks dingus. Yes they are much bigger than the rocks in my 10g. I would say that the one on the left would almost reach the top of the 36g once put in. Really do like the way it looks standing up like that...gonna have to trim the bottom so it will sit flat though.

Also thinking about islands as well. This one just popped in my mind first lol.

Hey Bribo, reef wise, if your speaking of the types of corals, I am looking at softies, LPS and SPS. I was also looking at a theme...lost city in the ruble and they using the branches to form like a tree of life. Basically using the branches and then using glue or putty to attach either zoa's, GSP etc. to them to make them look like a living tree.

Out of the rock that is in my 10g I have two more pieces that will go in there, the two that have coraline algae on the one with the corals already on it I was thinking about placing at the bottom in the middle.

Hope this makes sense lol.

Yessir it does. I was just stating it may be hard to have acros growing off the branching pieces but I see you have a good plan

Haha....gonna be playing with other scapes as well. The idea of acros or BN browing from them would be awesome, but not with the way they are now.

Who knows....after playing with some different layouts I may not even go with a theme at all lol.

I would take one of the rocks and use the tonga branches and putty them together to make a larger tree-like structure and then make a smaller island on the other side of the tank out of rubble.

That scape looks awesome!! Very realistic, I don't think it would be to hard to attach sps to the branches, you'd have to remove them from the plug or use some putty though
