Thanks, I plan on making a build thread once I get some time. Hopefully soon.First, I think you made a great tank choice. But beyond that, I actually like your scape— and as long as you can get a Flipper Mini between the glass and the rock (and it appears you can)— you’re golden. Best wishes! Can’t wait to see more photos.
Thank you, this has always been one of the most challenging parts for me. This is the 3rd tank and I struggle each time. Last scape I battled detritus build up around the rocks. Hoping to eliminate that with this build.That’s looks really good. I made a great scape for my 25 but made it a bit taller than I should have. I think yours will serve you well
I will be using sand for this one. CaribSea special grade. I’m a fan of sand but that’s just personal preference.Are you going bare bottom? If you go with sand, Florida Fighting Conchs are excellent for the sand in a tank that size.
Thanks for the suggestion. I will see what I can do. Your scape looks awesome.If you are worried about flow, you can raise the large base rocks with a few smaller rocks, like of like putting them on legs and creating caves and underpasses. Should improve flow and your fishes will appreciate the extra hiding spots
For ex, this is mine, the bottom, instead of 1 big base rock, is 4 small rocks propping up the large piece in the middle where the montis and psammies are. 1 flat verticle piece on the left (with the blast and leptos), and 3 smaller pieces on the right (with the gorgonia). The right side looks like 1 large piece but its not. It's hollow made from the 3 small pieces forming a "Y" shaped tunnel. Where the coral band shrimp is guarding is actually the opening of the tunnel that opens up to the far side corner.
I am gonna try to get the rocks up off the sand some so that I can get this to happen. This is great information.
So since I made this post earlier today a couple things have happened, one being my wife walked in the room and said exactly what you said, the back right looks empty. We are working on that as we speak. The other thing is when I measured out the water line Compared to the top of the rock structure they almost meet. I have a feeling I might have to start new.The 25 is not very big, so you might not mind this comment as you will get the too down view, but from the front, the back rear right corner is lost space for coral placement. Again, you will see this from the top, but your creatures might like to hangout there which would cause you to not see them from the front. Just aobservation, however I do like the aquascape.
25 gallon lagoon is a nice choice, my Daughter and I have one set up as I build my 125 gallon (over 2 years of very slow progress, lol)
Wish you luck!
