Aquascaping Established Tank

Hello all!

Iíve had my 14G Biocube reef tank set up for about 6 months now and really donít like the way I set up my aquascape. Thereís dead spots and also just not very appealing to look at. I wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions on the best way to be able to change up my live rock set up without having any issues in my tank.

I have 6 pieces of live rock currently in my tank with sand bed.

Any advise would be greatly appreciated!Click image for larger version

If you aren't happy with it, play with it. Move the rock around. Try to make as many caves and crevices as you can. It might be that you need to break one to scape with.

Thanks for the advice! I ended up breaking up one of the big rocks and much happier with it now!
Thanks again!

Glad it worked out! Large pieces are just hard to work with in smaller systems. When I set up my 36 bowfront, I ended up with a piece of plating rock from the Caribbean that was as large as my chest. I broke up others but couldn't bring myself to break that one. So I used it as a base...it's still with me to this day inside the Red Sea Max system.
