    Hello all. I'm just getting into the hobby. I have my tank and plumbing done. Now working on the aquascape design. What are your thoughts on this design? Right now it is just held with gravity and will attempt to secure it somehow. 20190209_183946.jpeg

    Thanks, I appreciate it. Now the key will be to get them in the tank the same way.

    I also think it looks great....just be careful how close those rocks get to the side and front glass (assuming that is the aquarium dimensions underneath the rock?) Glass will become covered with algae and you might not be able to clean it with rock being that close. Welcome to the site :):)!!

    Thank you and thanks for the advice about not getting too close to the glass. Yes, the board underneath is the shape/size of the tank. I might have to do something a little different on the left end.

    Thanks! Yes, indeed. Getting them in there the same way will be the challenge. I did take several pictures, a video around front and back, and attached marked zip ties to each piece in the Hope's of getting the puzzle back together. Lol.
