So here's what it looks like right now. Im totally open for ideas how to make it look better. It's not quite what i had planned, but whose plans ever come together right anyways?



and here's the snail the guy said was a margarita snail, though it looks like none i've seen online...

Oh, and i know cleaning the glass would help... too tired right now

Cleaning the glass was my first thought! Real nice scaping though. I like the openest and flow of your rockwork.

Have you thought about trading the kenyas in? I mean you could probably use the store credit. And BTW i would love to do sw. But i have eficially run out of room. I have a really acquard space in my room i was debating doing a odd shaped sw or crab tank. Cant decide. I still say in the end i would do sw as i could get some of the coolest oddballs in FW. But i like corals so you never know.

I started with a 29 gallon wal~mart special with some FW fish... then found a LFS said I want one of those.... he said then you need SW... so I got a 70g tank and made a nice set-up leaked all over my house fixed it then had to move... now I'm setting up a 320g with a 110g on the bottom... the moral of the story is once you go SW you may get a FW as well but your heart will always be in the reef.

Im sorry, but my heart always will be with FW. I mean look at that face.



I mean SW is cool, but i find FW fish so much more interesting, and the odds are endless with FW. People look at FW and only see the community tank, or mbuas when there is so much more.

Let's try to focus on Jonathan's tank....don't want this thread to get out of hand.

Looks good to me! I see lots of swim throughs and caves....perfect for the fish. Speaking of fish, have you thought about what you might like in your FOWLR? Just curious!

I'm starting to think more and more that its not going to be a fowlr for long. Im moving around mid may-early june. I'm pretty sure im going to be getting an 18" T5HO fixture within the next two weeks, so im going to make sure whatever fish i get are reef safe. I had sorta thought about a clown and a clown goby... would there be any problems there or is the tank too small for those two? I've also got what looks kinda like a bubble tipped anemone (though i know thats not what it is, just kinda resembles it) growing on one of the rocks. Its a light green color. any idea what it is? probably algae for all i know lol. So overall, the rockwork looks ok? i think it looks a little cluttered, but its kinda the look i was going for, just not quite exactly
