Please excuse the algae. I have a couple of Mexican turbos working on it.

I think it looks great. Your rock isnt resting on the glass and theres plenty of tunnels and overhangs.

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

If you like it the way it is, keep it. If you don't, then change it. The only way it can be wrong, is if you don't like the aquascaping. I've changed my designed a couple of times already lol.

Yeah. I like it. I feel as though it could be better but don't know how. I see other tanks and they look awesome but I just can't seem to get it to COMPLETELY satisfy me.

I constantly am changing my rock around, some days I like it some days I feel it could be better. LOL It's perfectly normal to feel like that so youre doing good. I happen to like the rock the way it is, but who knows you might come up with something better.

Then you're not done. When you're satisfied, you're done. My tank took about 1 hour to aqua ape, with the help of my cousins. I knew I was done when I saw it.

Thanks guys. I'm more of a perfectionist and I guess it's just my OCD kicking in. I like it and maybe when I get some more money I'll get some more live rock. Haha then I can re-sculpt a little.
