It's a 40b.What size tank? Looks good. Remember hiding spots and caves are good for fish. Its a safe zone for them
I will have sand on bottom. This is the highest the rock work will be.Is it going to be a bare bottom tank? A lot of hardscapes just "grow" as you add more corals etc. and seldom end up the same. Just keep readjusting. Also, don't go much higher, I made that mistake once, unless your only having bottom fish. Fish like tangs and cardinals damsels, etc like swimming room. Also, if you are going to have corals, they wil grow upward or you will keep adding rock to get them closer to the top and more surface area. Looks like a good start.
I have never been happy with any tank I've done until I've had to tear it down...and then the next tank is never as good as the one before.
I wouldn't put more where you have shown in red. The sand will fill the gap remember as you put rock in first then sand, not other way around. This is my new scape with arches ect..
Was looking at that this morning and figured out a couple of spots to make caves.Do you have any critter caves? What are your plans for placing coral? I don't see much in the way of either. Just being honest.... It looks "artsy" to me. While it looks great not so sure it will serve you long term. Then again I'm more partial to shelves and lots of overhangs. Easier to place things and gives fish places to feel safe.
i should have asked that too.Looks good but I think as you’ve said, maybe a little more rock in front of the arch so it sort of flows down and away as natural as you can make it.
Maybe a few similar and smaller pieces along the same lines on the other side
When I designed my scape I tried to make everything look as natural as possible but of course it’s very much a personal preference
Anyway make sure you post the final shots for our approval !lol
Tank will be viewable from front and sides. Front will be main view, right would be partially viewable, left would be if you really wanted to you could.contrary to popular belief there is no such thing as to high.
is the tank going to be viewable from front and back or only the front?
my preference is to go diagonal (looking down) back to front/right to left or left to right
and sloping down from top to bottom on one side.
you're too far along to be making major changes is my guess.
take a look at my build thread page one for the structure, last page for a vid.
