I have a 36"x36"x26" on the way and I'm just trying to get some ideas for my rockwork. The marco rock is pretty boring but I'm trying to imagine what it will look like covered in coralline and
corals. Let me know what you think so far. The cardboard is the size of the tank

I'm liking the look, you give depth and height with a nice arch.

If any suggestions I would say find a way to make a cave with the rocks on the left for some 3d depth into those rocks.

But really good job!

Quick side question, is gorilla glue or anything else you'd pick up from home depot safe for gluing rocks or is it better to use these "reef glues"?

Water weld is a safe epoxy you can use. It'll make the skimmer overflow for awhile. Love the scape but you may want to lighten up on the base rock as mentioned. I did a lot of base in my cube and it killed the flow. I ended up have to remove some pieces and prop up others on rock "legs". Also when I did mine I made the scape 4 connected pieces instead of one large fused one in case I had to lift it out for any reason. With some of my Marco rock I chipped holes into it and made the football shapes into more jagged shapes to add detail and hiding spots, coral mounting spot etc.

Here was when I had too much base in my 150.

Excuse the crowded sand bed. Kinda hard to see what rock I removed but it was almost half.
