I think it looks great love the Tonga branch look!
Looks great to me, very nice!
Are you going to put corals on it? It would be awesome to see a zoa tree.
That looks really nice. I think that Tonga presents the most challenges when it comes to scaping. But you have made it work!
I also like it....much different than what you normally see. Reminds me of a freshwater planted tank scape
Looks great! Love the volume you got out of the branches. May I ask what brand and how much rock you have used?
Yeah but gonna be sps though..
I think its about 30-40lbs... just tongga got from a friend..
That is truly one beautiful art piece!
Love the way it takes up a decent portion of the tank but still leaves plenty of room for coral growth.
Looking forward to seeing it a few years from now.
Do you have a build thread?
Very nice, how times did it take you to get it looking like that or was it dry fitted before putting it into the tank
90% like it Most times I wouldn't because a lot of folks doing the Tonga Branch look ,, use spindlie looking pieces of rock that leaves corals having ,, a bit of difficulty when it comes to encrusting room ,, you have used thick branches so this won't be much of a problem ,, the 10% I don't like ,, the few pieces that are pretty vertical ,, makes for limited coral growing space ,, I am all about putting a coral in every possible space lol there are very few of those pieces of rock ,, very good job ,, keep this post saved in your favorites ,, so we can see what this tank ends up looking like down the road
I like it. My only word of advice would be if you are doing SPS dominant then some of the branches are very close to the waterline. I would take some inches off the top and put the pieces in the sump area to maintain the biological filtration. It will look more empty now but it will give your future SPS to grow up and branch to the waterline. It will look better and more full in the future with SPS colonies. imo
No build thread really..
Dry fitted, zip tied the rocks then cement over the zipties so it wont show..
Which vertical parts? Maybe i can cut those out for more room for coral growth..
Yeah i was thinking that too.. i might do that...
That was my thought as well. Looks great overall, maybe a little tall..
