Opinions on scape please...

I have the 2 returns pointed behind the rocks so plenty of flow gets back there, and 2 MP10's are pushing water nicely...

Hard to tell from one pic. Front looks good but I'd try and lift one area off the sand bed to both insure greater flow and because lots of fish, shrimp, etc like overhangs and caves. Good luck.

Thanks was gonna try and loosen things up a bit. That's a little over 40 lbs in there right now. I might remove a piece of the larger rock to create some space and change the layout a bit...

I like it. The only suggestion I would make is to tilt the rock that is up and down in the front to a side to side angle. maybe make a small cave. But other than that it looks good. Plenty of room on the sides so you can clean the glass and the rock looks stable.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

The tilted rock is holding up the ones behind it I'm gonna play around with it tonight... Usually, as this hobby goes, I'll change one small thing and then all of a sudden all my rock is on the floor trying a completely new concept. Wish me luck lol...

New adjustments... Lots of caves, swim throughs, etc... Gives it dimension too which I think is important on a shallow deep tank. Thoughts now??

very nice! I like it better than what you had, and I liked that too. lol

You made it look llike the tank is bigger than it is with how you staggered the rock from front to back. Great job.

All cleared up... Looks pretty good. Might move the front caves around a bit but looks solid IMO.
