So my water is getting pretty good and I arranged the rocks in what I think is a kinda cool way. I made a open area in the center of all the rocks and left plenty of room in front for swimming and frolicking.

I've been checking out the rock and I've found a few pods still crawling around, I'm guessing this is a really good thing. I hope so anyway. I most likely will be going to a fish store tomorrow that had spectacular live rock last week and maybe get a few smaller pieces. It was covered in coralline and was very porous, looked like base rock it looked so pretty, but it was def alive. lol

Here are some pictures of it from the front and one is the side view I get as i sit at my computer.

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

Thanks guys. can you tell about the little center space I left open? i know it's kinda small but it look real good from right in front of it LOL. I wanna try to get some flatter pieces of rock tomorrow maybe make a ledge type thing. Oh, I don't know. i'll keep futzing around til I find something I like i guess.

Definitely a great place for a mantis shrimp!

Jk, but it does look good. I really like the reefcleaners rock, I keep trying to find a way to have someone buy me 10lbs to replace my crappy rock a bit at a time, but I can never justify it.

What happened to the hood in the earlier posts? Take it off to do stuff inside? I've never seen someone do it before, I just flip it up and leave it. Always fearful I'll leave for a second and my firefish will take his leap of faith.

I was a busy bee under the hood today, theres a nice spot between my computer desk and the cube stand that holds the hood perfectly even with all the ballasts hanging off. lol

I was thinking on getting a few shrimp and a couple of gobies so I want them to have some good hidey spots. Plus I can see all the action. I hate losing fish in a tank like my pistol shrimp, tanks too big to find em anymore. least in the cube all my guys will front and center

I was looking at them and they do look really nice. I was wondering how you would have regular lights on one of those.
