    Is your aquascape balanced?

    Aquascaping from a design perspective is rarely discussed. I’ve always wondered why we don’t talk much about what makes a scape look visually appealing, so I’ve started a series where I apply common principles of design used in art, photography, graphic design, etc. to reef aquascapes. This is...

    Share your Mushroom gardens! I wanna see them Shrooms!

    Building a new aquascape in my 100g and I want to add a mushroom garden in the front low portion of the tank, my initial thoughts are to build marina type rock structure around them to minimize the flow on them. Looking for inspiration, ideas and pictures, please:)

    Decent Rockscape or Redo?

    So I built this scape and was really excited about it, because I wanted something tiered that was easy to put frags on. Now that it is in the tank I'm worried about coverage and if the top tier is even usable because I'd say it's maybe 9" to 6" at tallest point below water line. My original...

    Affordable Dry Rock

    Hey guys, so I'm about to work on my second tank and could use some advice on dry rock. Personally, I prefer dry rock method. It's a little slower, but it avoids any unwanted pests, and since this is going to be a frag grow out tank, I'd like to avoid any possibility of pests or problems...

    Aquascape opinions?

    I haven't quite made my mind up on this aquascape, and I wanted to see if anyone had any advice/constructive criticism before the new tank gets wet. This is my first time using base rock instead of live rock, so I know it isn't perfect.

    Using Epoxy as a Shelf?

    Hello folks, On my way back from lunch I was wondering... What if I could use a large amount of epoxy to create some type of "shelf plateau" for coral placement? I never heard of anyone doing that, and maybe there are people out there doing it. I just wonder if you have any input on this, if...
