I'll have to look at the rest of the rock to see if I can do that. Good idea about the supports. I'll keep you posted. And thank you for the drawing, helped make sense of what you were saying.

Cool to see it coming together! The picture and shadows make the rock on the top of the right island look like a face kind of. I like the two island look but would shoot for less symmetry. Maybe make one side a bit bigger than the other and off center. The bridge look would be cool too but again you wanna shoot for a natural look which can be challenging. Really though it's your tank so go with the way you like it best.

I agree with this 100%. The islands would look better if they were different sizes IMO.

Added 20 more lbs if rock and did some rearranging. Not where I want it yet, but it's getting there. I like the right side, but still needs work in the left.

Haha.... Can't seem to get the bridge to work. Tried, but not stable enough. I rearranged again. I like this arrangement. There's a lot more space between the rocks for flow and for the eel to get through. I have about 50 more lbs of rock in my other tank, but think ill leave it there. It'll need some too keeping some biological life in it. I'm hoping this time tomorrow it will be up and running. Still haven't tested the return pump, but it's ready for turn on once there's enough water in the sump. Almost there!
