Update to live rock...

K I am OCD about the placement and overall aesthetic appearance of my live rock... Here's how it originally was...

Yup, overcrowded I thought, so I sold about 20 lbs of rock so it looked like this...

Love the scaping and don't want you to rearrange at all for what I'm about to say but I find it more natural and appealing when you make things offset instead of symetrical so maybe one side a bit higher then the other and the main passage 1/3 of the way across instead of 1/2. Once again though love how it ended up turning out, how many lbs is that?

It's about 45 lbs... See its funny cuz the picture is deceiving. The background is black so you can see all the other caves and such which take the symmetrical look out all together... Here you can KINDA tell but not really with these pics haha..

If it fits what about on the ride side pile bringing it higher then the rest of the tank and hiding your filter tube from a straight view

I could try. I think I'm good for now tho, finally getting the look I'm aiming for... I don't think I want to have the rock piled up too high, pretty content with where it is!
