Just got into the hobby few months ago... finally bought my 2 tanks a 75 gallon and a 30 gallon sump. Also some other items.

I’m currently focused on building the Marco rock aquascape, I’m trying to achieve an NSA arch in the center as main display kinda.

I haven’t set up tank yet because we moving on Nov 17, then I will begin the cycle process but now I’m building rock. I’ve been doing some research the past month or 2 mainly podcast since I can listen to them while I work all day. 6 days a week.

I’m glad to be here, I’ll let y’all know if I need some help with anything. If y’all have any suggestions please lmk...

Sorry for no update and only 1 picture. Been busy moving, just now starting to catch a break plus work lol
Picture is of what I’m thinking of going with.
The table I’m building on is the same size as my tank which gives me a reference point. I’ve been measuring the height as I build.

I will definitely keep updating as I go, and post many more picturesjust been busy lately. I plan on only having a few inverts with maybe a few fish that help with cleaning the tank but my main focus is coral. As soon as I lie my eyes on this hobby my attention went straight to the corals instead of fish.

I plan on setting the tank up after Christmas and the New Years as the holidays are always busy for me so we will both be looking forward to that. Let me know if ya have any questions or concerns. I’m always open for ideas or any tips y’all have plz and thx
HAPPY REEFING

How high is the arch you have in your first post? I only ask because you don't want to go too high or the corals you place on the top will run out of vertical space and start growing out of the water a little. Just a heads up.
+1 on height concern. I have a xenia that I set my water change level by, so keep in mind you may want to pull 10 to 20% of the water out on occasion.
