Id talk to Mrc8858.. he helped me with how to scape mine, and being I've only scaped my 29g tank I'm not really an expert on it, its more of a general preference, just make sure there's plenty of caves and holes and whatnot.

So should I make like pillars and build the rock off the pillars? Or just dig it all down and have a few rocks completely covered by sand? Haha

No dig some rocks half way down into the sand or so, these pieces will be your base or foundation. Then slowly stack them higher until you find something you like

Will that be okay? With rock half burrows there will still be room to dig under them... Alot of room. This what I have to work with



The sand bed is 5" deep

Sorry Khij- Ive been working a lot lately, so haven't been on much. Put your biggest rocks at the bottom, obviously. I put my bottom ones all the way down to bottom, but they're pretty good sized, so good amount still above sand. Then just stack and build till you like it and its sturdy. It'll probably take a while till you get the final result. Good luck!!

Okay. Well I got a few good sized rocks but most aren't enough to go to the bottom and still stick out of the sand bed. Soo just kinda burry them until they're in the sand really good and then build off them?
