Finally decided to stop being lazy and finish my carving. Now I just need to do finishing touches on the "rocks" and start sealing them.

Update: I pulled the background out of the tank and I started to temper the surface of the foam with a heat gun. It actually made it look allot more like a real rock. I'll continue this tomorrow and start to glue everything together. I'll post pictures of the results.

Looks very cool, I never check this section so I wasn't aware of your update. How many gallons do you think you'll lose with that? Just curious since I've always been tempted to try one.

I am going to trim some of the depth off allot of the pieces, to try and keep as much volume as I can. My guess is I'll lose maybe 20 gallons. I'll figure out some kind of gallon per minute fill ratio so I know how much volume I lost.

I got all the finishing touches on the rocks done and got two base coats on the back board piece. Now I just need one more coat on the backboard then I can start attaching the rocks and painting those!
