Here are some ideas for back grounds. Some people make them out of fiberglass and attach rocks to them-
https://www.google.com/search?q=subm...=isch&imgdii=_


look down fish mostly swim at the top 3rd of the tank, but I'm sure they will all be swimming all over. If you have the back ground like I am suggesting, fish will want to pick at the algae growing on it so they will be all over, and where there is light, there is algae...

I would get those airstones out of there and put more power heads in to increase circulation. I would also get rid of the sharks. They are not going to do well in that tank.

How much did you pay for this?

Wow, that is a BIG tank. It almost looks like the stand is open at the bottom. Where is the filtration?

You can see the ASM skimmer to the left....and locline coming from the bottom. I'm guessing that's the sump over there.

Please help ! Beginner with 700 Gallon Tank!

If the floor is concrete your okay. A regular wooden floor supported on joists might need to be reinforced. I had to add steel to my house to place my 300 in the middle of the room. I would put something down to set the tank on. Like a piece of plywood or osb.

Your right about the corals, but with a tank like this you could build a rock wall and get corals closer to the surface.

Otherwise, as X said, your in a great position to house many beautiful full grown fish without issue. I am so use to telling people their tanks are too small for that fish, it's nice to not worry about that.
