This is the first tank going up this year started just before the new year to start 2023 off right. This 75g will be moved to the master bedroom as our personal reef, and in a few short months I’ll start posting the next newest addition that will be in our dinning/living room 225g

unfortunately I ran into issues with my aquascape however the completed aquascape will be photographed and posted.

As of right today the tanks current inhabitants are a small spiny lobster that will be moved to the 225, two clowns, 2 skunk cleaners, 4 trochus snails, 4 red legs.

Thank you, I did mention it is lacking in some small spots I’m currently working on correcting it, hopefully I’ll have an updated photo this weekend. I would love to hear what you think then

If it looks great now I could only imagine it'll get better. Hopefully my upcoming tanks turns out as good. You did some good work there!
I know th changes are minimal but if you compare old photos I added rock/shelf to the three left side holes to make them more cave like, as well as I added a branch coming off the side kind of sealing those rocks, on the right pile I added another arch on the left side of the right rocks give one more cave to provide habitat on that side.
