It does look good! The trick to rockwork is taking your time. Every time you go to a lfs, search thru their rock (base and live) and only buy the ones that you can see in your tank before you even leave the store. It may sound odd- but even look at river rock! They are amazing with the crevices and ledges and craters. It took me over 4 hours to scape my tank but I love it and am always getting complemented on it.

It's very open, I like it a lot, but you'll probably need a few more tighter spaces for the goby and other fish.

So, i think we will add the last rock tomorrow, and check the levels...

If everything checks out and the rockscape is where we want it, shall we go pick up snape?

Also, about the engineer digging...how much??

Go for it as long as you feel your tank is ready. About how often- mine stick to their cave unless another fish tries to upset him (not often) maybe once every few month I see a little sand being kicked up
