its fun... if you look through my builds i mask off the entire tank. well just about the entire tank. but i do ensure no over spray can enter the tank.

Good start! I;d move the one sticking up and change its place with the rock to the far right. make another cave like overhang.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

move the piece on the back left in towards the center more and just flip the piece on the left upside down? just to see what it looks like.

or take the piece on the right with the piece on the left and build an arch?

I like the big cave to the left. I say make at least two caves. They look cool and give the fish a place to hide!
