I like the redo as well. Though it doesn't look like a lot of rock is in the tank? Do you have enough?

Ive heard of people drilling the rocks and inserting acrylic tubing to help hold unstabe rocks together gluing them in only one of the rocks help make it removable and stable for easy tare downs i have not tryed my self but am planning on it when i move my 200 gallon as im renting my current place and my lease is almost up and im looking for a cheaper place..
I only have about 80-90 lbs of rock and about anouther 60lbs of substrate
Fish: i have a porky pine puffer, two clowns maited pair, three damsels 2 yellow tails one blue, and one foxface rabbit fish.
Various hermits and snails. No corals or nems yet need better lighting..

Thank you. Shoot...well it's a 65 gal. I think I bought 90 pounds of rock, but I guess I only used about half of it. Should I add some height to it? I don't think the bonding stuff will work in the water but maybe there would be some pieces that would fit snug enough that I wouldn't need it.

Yeah, you're going to need more rock if you only used half of the 90#'s. You can build it up, or just put more in your sump.

Or make it easy on yourself. Glue it together outside of the tank and then make sure it fits securely on top the existing rock. That way if something happens and you need to get something out you are able to lift only 45 lbs at a time.
