1st night with DIY mesh top... Cross your fingers I don't wake up with a tank full of electrocuted reef! I pushed as hard as I could on the light and it didn't budge. Leave it to my cat to figure out how...

I really need a canopy!

Here's a quick pic:

Thanks guys!

Please tell me your opinions:

As you can see from my many FTS's throughout this thread, my reef is basically a large pile of rocks put together in a pyramid style in my tank. The corner shape of the tank biases the shape.

So I was thinking, since I've let the side glass go since I've had the tank, and its painted anyway, could I build up the sides of the reef up the side glass and fill it out more?

I was picturing like monti plate corals at different levels on the sides and other types of corals basically taking over the sides of the tank. I've never seen anyone do this, but I don't see why not.

In the extreme I was even thinking about somehow attaching acrylic "shelves" that would be hidden under rock with more corals on them.

Any thoughts?

I'm running out of room for corals and the only options I have to add more are up the sides or in the back!

I've been follwing your thread for a while and havent said anything until now but that sounds like a good idea. The sides are already painted and you want new corals why not go for it.

LOL, I guess I meant a corner tank! I guess it is the same idea! Well then, more rock it is!
