Ya, why dont you care what we have to say? Even if your tank WAS terrible, nobody would say so!

Your tank is so cool, so creative and realistic. Props to you!

Sharkbait its a 180gal. This is how its set up
The tank itself has one rena canister that runs all the time.
Two heaters one 300 watt and one 350
It has an over flow that runs down thru a trickle filter and then thru a uv then into a 29 gal with an fbf then snails plants driftwood is in there and pumped up with a utility pump with a valve to adjust some flow and a check valve. Works great

You made your rocks? That is so cool! I have read over lots of different ways to make them for reptile set ups, but never for fish. I'm curious what process/materials you used, too!

I would personally not try it for a saltwater tank just an FYI I used styrofoam, quickrete, and that brands colors and like 8 tubes of ge silcone 1 for Windows and doors ,paint brushes and I used a multi tool for cutting everything it was a nicer then trying to use a razor blade of any assortment. This is not mine but here ya go for diy 3d aquarium backgrounds

Oh okay. Styrofoan and quickrete, I have heard of doing this.

They still look great. Good job on getting creative!
