I have about 5 large pieces of LR, and about 4 small pieces of LR, plus all the rocks shown above..

Why wouldn't I need to clean the glass with corraline algae??

Thanks,

-TheChad

Purple corraline growing on the back glass for those with front viewing tanks is pretty much a standard IMO. Rocks on the back glass too.

If I were you, I'd use the large rocks on the very bottom of the tank. Try to wedge or stack some smaller ones after those. When It gets to precarious with smaller rocks (being unstable or too loose, I'd consider doing without them and getting larger base to use instead.

From the looks of those smaller pieces, I think you've been having a real hard time using them. Maybe give'm up.

I haven't even gotten to the smaller pieces yet!

I took out all of those rocks, and am just trying to work on the LR at the bottom right now.. I had several of those rocks burried in the sand, I am trying to stack the larger LR ontop of those so that if fish dig out the sand they would be on solid rock underneith, but the large rocks don't ballance well..

Thanks,

-TheChad

I would get a few flat ledge pieces and try to make something almost like a pyramid. You might be able to use your back corners. using the sides of the corners (like an L shape) put some smaller pieces in the back corner like an L put ya a ledge rock across the top and do it again with a few less pieces again a ledge and then again with a few less pieces (like a pyramid). The in the middle use the back glass. You could also use an aquarium putty to give it a little stability but also reversable. just a thought.
Good Luck!

Don't stress yourself out over this, glue them and make the aquascape you WANT rather than what works from finding balancing points!!

Here's a glue for aquascaping:

thats what I use and it works well. It holds the rock and if if you should want to move something later it comes apart with a little effort.

Thanks,

if you use it to hold 2 rocks together and you wanted to move them just pull them apart where you joined them and then just peel the putty off. I bought a mushroom that was attached to a piece of rock. I wanted to move it yesterday so I just pulled it off and moved it.

I am not sure about glass I have not tried that yet. You might be able to try a silicone too.
