Theres about 2.5 inches at least on both sides. I wanted to be sure I could clean the glass.

I can't clean the back so I figured I'd try that way. I don't brace off the glass though in any other tank. With the amount of fish I want I need as much room as possible was my thought. I could add another whole layer of rocks in the front, theres are lest 6 inches if not more space in front. But I think that would be TOO much rock.

Yeah I did that, the pictures are a few pages back. lol I didn't like it in the end cause of the overhang, no light means no corals and means I can't see the fish under it. lol

If you have eyes you qualify for critiquing.

I just keep looking at it and thinking I can do better.

I think the rocks look nice... But then I really liked that cave you made too.

I checked out some live rock at my closest LFS and saw some pieces that were almost as purple as yours, Carey!
