Convict, the tank is amazing to say the least. If your ever in south east Florida, I could use your scaping skills!!! Would love a more natural look in the 54g corner!!!!

Haha yeah I know what you mean. Maybe I should start like a tour with my tank hooked up in one of those awesome RV's and travel around the country lol. That would be cool! Then you could see it lol.

Start out small and post pics of your scape work on local bulletin boards especially at lfs and lps and offer your help for a minimal fee... Just the fun of scaping new tanks that you don't have to pay for or find a place for would be enough for me haha

That will definitely depend on location.... Not many people around me have the kind of money to pour into a SW tank hobby let alone pay others to do it for them. It's all about location location location

Wow thanks everyone for the awesome compliments!! I didn't think it was anything special honestly. I just put rocks and corals together, sat back looked at it and moved things around until I felt it looked as natural as I could get it. Don't we all do it.

I've seen some tanks here on the forum and there amazing!!

Thank you though. Maybe I'll ask my buddy who owns the mom and pop shop what he thinks about maybe putting me to work. I'll print a bunch of picks from all 3 tanks and he can show his customers.

Also I would need a name or catch phase lol. I'd make T-shirts.

My wife watches that home channel. She says. "Scape Appeal"
