Very nice! Those uppermost rocks are secure... right? They just look kinda tippy and I wouldn't want something to come tumbling down and squish someone. Or worse yet, break the glass!

Yes...I spent a couple of hours (believe it or not) just moving thosrocks int place so that with my hands...I could push on all ends with absolutly no movement . I also made sure the bottom rocks were deep into the sand(see as touching bottom) so that no future critters or fishies would dig and loosen the setting in any way...I have definitly been following an awful lot of AA adventures , stories and advice...( I LOVE THIS SITE!!) The rocks may look a little dangerous but they are acually odd shaped and fit together like puzzle pieces nicely!! And Everyone looks HAPPY this morning!!!

Looks pretty good. I remember when I moved from a 55 to a 125. I thought to myself look at all the room. All the room has since vanished. LOL

He is quite the shy one...I have had him for 3 years now and he is about 5 inches... He digs himself a home and it is his.....NO intruders.... but the rest of his fish mates are left alone. I understand with age they are suppose to get aggressive but so far he has been good. I cannot for the life of me recall what the other larger fish is called....I do remember that he is some kind of Psuedo Angel/butterfly??? Can anyone help with that???

The other large fish looks like a surgeon fish of some kind. I'm not really sure what the exact name is.

I have a blue velvet damsel that I had to remove from my reef. It decided it liked the taste of my Zoas. That was a big no no for me. Plus it was just a nasty fish. He now has his own 20g tank all to himself. I've had him for almost 2 years now.
