Yeah, it does take up some space. I would have loved to get the Reef-Ready corner tank by AGA, but it was way too big for the area I was using. So drilling a smaller tank was my only option.

As far as the sand, what you see in the first picture of Day #1 is all the sand pulled to the front of the tank so that I could place a piece of eggcrate under the rock and then stack the rock before pushing the sand back. I did not want the rock to be sitting atop 3"+ of sand and risk a topple. If you look at the second picture from Day#1, you see the rock in place and then the sand pushed back into the aquascaping.

Furthermore, you can see that the Koralia #3 pumps have a tendency to push enough sand around that they've created a groove in the front of the substrate as depicted in the last picture from Feb. 2008.

Hey, don't forget to vote OBAMA today, people!

Yup, you're right. Thought it might have been the camera angle but it's just the cloudy water. I have mine off the sand on lifts so I can get some circulation under there and get all the goodies out and about. Looks nice though.

I was trying to avoid that last comment in my first post, as I will now also
