I have a guy! I haven't even been to his place in a while but I'd be happy to put you in touch. He's the Noah's ark.

Iíll definitely take you up on that when itís time. Just got done double checking the nanobox tide that Iím using, waiting on a couple Amazon packages and then I think Iíll be grabbing some base rock to start up this weekend or next.

Thanks man, glad to see Iím not the only one who couldnít stay away. I got a fluval flex 15g 7-8 months ago that was half off. Not really a big fan of the front but wanna try an aio and it was cheap. I saw regular torches that were 10-15 a head when I stopped going for 60-70 now which is nuts to me. I think Iím gonna stick to zoas and rics mainly, maybe a couple plating montis, and would love to find a couple rfas or maybe a bubble tip

So Iíve been thinking about building one of those negative space aquascapes, where you build almost bonsai tree esque style with shelves at different levels and angles. The floor space is pretty limited so I thought itíd work well in a cube, anyone tried one?

I haven't, but they sure look neat. I'm not sure how one would approach flow in the system maybe? The key to any minimalistic look would have a majority of the base rock in the sump. Then would be minimalistic with fish as well. The lack of hiding places would lead to increased aggression I would think?

Operation clown goby rescue!!

Iím not necessarily trying to go for a minulmistic look, just trying to go more vertical with rock branches and overhangs/shelves to best maximize the footprint and still allow me some room in the sand bed for a couple small acan or blasto rocks. Hard to explain I guess. Not to worried about flow, between the return Iím going to use and the power head I can push 800+ gph if I set em to full power and I think the vertical nature of an nsa will make it easier to get flow everywhere in the tank. Iím getting 4 large pieces from a friend, a little under 25 lbs and will break it with a chisel and glue/mortar the pieces back together so there will be plenty of rock. I know how important the rock work is in a small system even if itís been a while. And Iím only planning on 2 fish, hi fin goby with a pistol and either another clown goby or tail spot blenny or possibly a clown, my daughter wants a clown badly so thatís probably the way itíll end up going.

I think I understand what you're talking about, just not explaining it well. Like a bonsai tree. Either way, you're experienced enough that you won't have issues.

That's exciting. I'm once again considering a small footprint. Still no one bought my 55G SCA but saw a new low iron 32G for a reasonable price, but after adding a new stand would be better to just buy a used SW tank and stand set up, haven't found what I want yet, lol. But thinking of having an island with mangroves out the top and MA again (with RF anemones), which seems to becoming a popular style set up. I have been watching some builds from tigahboy.h20 on IG and he's doing fabulous things in MA.

Looking forward to a link for the new tank.
