I wouldn't remove any of that rock. I think it looks nice the way it is.

The urchin is really nice! And as always the tank looks great. Next time the dollar per gallon sale comes up in gonna grab a 40b and buy my rock from amazon. My local petco is actually pretty decent. The staff is normally nice and helpful. There is a good amount of test kits/filter media/fish. They happen to sell love rock for about $2.50 a pound. Just got 21lbs of it for a ten gallon an it came out to like $40.

Yeah, loving the 40b footprint. Its like having a minature 125g lol. It got great front to back room and a decent length.
I was thinking of trying two islands of rock, I have been meaning to do that one day in one of my tanks but never have. The idea behind how I have the rock now is that it all connects and the holes are visible from the front so when crittters hide in them I will be able to see em. lol

Haha I have seen almost entirely upside down rockscapes but way too much work for me lol.

The cycle has begun. Dosed the dr tims I was supposed to and dosed up the ammonia.
Here is where we are at right now

Supposedly, but I would add more ammonia after it zeros out to make sure you have adequate bacteria to support livestock.
