This is just my opinion from seeing many reef aquariums over the years, but pulling off an aesthetically pleasing LPS dominant system is not so easy a task (excluding Euphyllia dominant tanks as there are many finely aqua scaped examples). I'm specifically referring to those that predominantly feature 'round-ish' LPS.

I think this might be the first time that I've actually posted a direct link to an aquarium on YouTube, but I found this reef aquarium an excellent example of aqua scaping for just such a system:

LPS Dominant 40g from Germany

There are a couple real interesting things here. Temps in the very low 70's, feeding 3x/day, magnetic coral modules on the back wall (each grouping specific genus/species of LPS). I really like the judicious use of Gorgonians strategically and effectively placed to breakup all that round goodness.

Same tank, same guys, but a deeper dive into aqua scaping (in German, so turn on subtitles if you aren't fluent in the language):

And of course all that healthy expensive LPS eye-candy doesn't hurt either ;)

Does it matter to you whether your fish are captive-bred or wild caught?
