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

IMO break 'em up and build a bit higher. I'm more a fan of fancy scapes though

What would you say is the typical weight in rocks that should be in the 29g?

You think so? I was thinking no corals in this so I don't need coral "platforms" but I haven't built tall rockscapes yet..Maybe the big rock on the right could get crushed a bit? I was using it as a cave and to cover the ugly live rock i added..

I'm just a fan regardless. Especially when the hardscape is nothing but rock, then you can't have ugly pieces covered in coral

I don't necessarily mean tower-like, just higher in the tank. Maybe take a look at Zer0's build threads, he makes awesome 'scapes

Anyway this is JMO, you can leave it how you want of course. I won't knock you for not having a rock structure that I don't like

I still have to drain the tank again to move it back in place after fixing the leak so maybe4 I will re arrange and break that large on up. I planned on getting a blenny/goby so I wanted them to have a hidey hole. lol

I am getting really frustrated with this cube!! It appears to be still leaking and I think it may be the seal along the bottom where the black meets the glass on the left side.

I guess my $100 bio cube deal was a bust. I could just strangle that guy. He had the water in but not all the way filled up which is when it leaks.

Any suggestions? I'm about ready to just empty it and toss the **** thing. I've spent several hundred bucks on this thing already and I'm not even sure its ok.
