rock around, and yup did it again haha... I wanted to move 1 rock, and I had a vision... But I
think I finally will be happy with it now... Check it out, there's a TON of little caves (kinda hard to tell because the black background:

I like it. Reminds me of the rockwork in my 55 reef. There are a ton of caves hidden away in mine as well. Sometimes I think I did too good of a job as it is hard to see some of my fish sometimes...

Haha thanks Snipes-a-lot! Funny because last week I added a 6 line and a threadfin anthias, and the 6 line disappeared for the rest of the night. I actually didn't see him til the next morning, I thought he made a jump for it!

So I just noticed this today on my rock today... Is it some sort of sponge or something?

Looks like a sponge to me. Also, good for the 6 line. It prob has itself a nice spot hidden away. I have trouble finding my mandarin with all the caves I have and recently painting the back of my glass black. If he's out of sight, I only know his general area because my indigo dottyback has ran protection for it since I introduced it into the tank. It's neat to see them sharing the dottyback's cave.

The rock looks awesome! What kind of power heads are you using? When I build caves etc, I feel like I don't have enough flow and I have three power heads. When you post your pics it makes me want to start over! LOL!

3 power heads too! All Koralia, 1400 gph, 550 gph, and 450 gph. A good way to see your flow is to drop a pinch of sand in front of the power heads. With 3, I bet you have a lot more flow in the caves than you think...!
