My first attempt at NSA. Going in a 6ft mixed reef. Base is Marco base piece and the rest is Pukani that has been sitting in my garage. It's currently 16in tall (2/3 ht of tank). Unfortunately, I've got 2 braces across my tank at 21 inches apart, so it limits what I can do outside of the tank. I plan on adding additional branches once I get the main pieces in the tank to allow them to fit together. Currently glued but will mortar together. What are your thoughts, critiques, and/or advice? This is my first one, so I'm learning as I go along.

Oops. Realize I had the PVC flipped the wrong way. Here it is flipped

Wow I really like that one. Do you have any finished pics or video?
Here is the finished rockscape. One piece on the far right broke off, so I have it being supported by another rock until I can get more mortar in. I glued it back together, but indint trust the glue for the long run.
