That rockwork is incredible! Exactly what I had wanted to do for my 90 gallon, but sadly, I gave up and just stacked a bunch of rocks
Wanna come build me a sweet scape? Lol

Ha ha!
Thanks.
Of course I would! You in NYC?
Took me a month to build it.

*Marco rock, (acid dipped) acrylic rods, water epoxy, super glue gel & zip ties.

I originally had the Nuvo 30, but it came in cracked, and they discontinued them. So they upgraded me to the 40 after 2 months. All summer empty tank

The rock structure was not that big at first, but by not having my tank I kept adding to it.. Fortunately I ran out of dry rock. Ended up larger then intended.

Rock Work? Nuvo 40 Fusion

Stand finally here.
Rest of equipment should be here Friday.
Ghost skimmer
2- RW 4's
2- Custom media baskets
BRS - GFO & Carbon
Media Bags, floss, Etc...
Wire Duct - for cabinet.

Except controller. (Haven't decided yet on what to go with, maybe new Archon when its out)?


I have not cycled a brand new system / tank with only dry rock, so this should be a while Im guessing.

Hopefully Saturday night Ill start making RO/DI water to get this baby wet.

I have to use Ammonia, wifey wont have the raw shrimp this go around.

Couldn't wait!

Skimmer, heater, reactor, ATO all in.

Media baskets & the RW4's should be here in the next couple days.

I have a couple old wp10's to get going though.

Still need a controller.

Tidy up some more wires and ammonia time.

Looking good! I still can't get over that rock work.

You're kinda starting to make me want to start my build a little early!
