    first attempt and really digging it. Mix of life rock shapes and marco rocks. Let me know what you guys think!

    I love the whole upper section...especially the left side. If anything, I would maybe remove the second and fifth small rock on the bottom in the front to allow for more water circulation underneath and create less of a "wall" of rock. Might not even be possible.....just a suggestion :)

    Thanks, i think those rocks you mention are supporting the rocks above, so i don't think i have the ability to remove them.

    It looks good and I think it would look very good with corals.

    Looks good. I’d also maybe try to take out a couple of those small bottom rocks if they aren’t supporting anything. I’m not a fan of the one flat cut slab rock either but I’m sure it will look good when the corals are covering it.

    I would reposition the top rock that is second from the left. that straight line doesn't look natural. really sticks out in an otherwise decent pile of rocks.

    Went nuts last night and redid it. I couldn't get past the 2 colors of rocks. What do you guys think, do you like this one better?

    I like that much better for sure. I’ve always really hated that fake painted rock. I’m sure eventually it looks natural but I think it makes the tank look like something with those fake coral inserts.

    I think the rocks on the right look too uniform. I’d break them up a bit.
