I am also trying to keep my rock work pretty contained. I am trying to keep as much swim space available as I can and following the rule of 3rds. (Still doing some tiding of wires and building out the tank, check out my build thread if you have any interest in it)

Sorry for reposting (as I already made a thread for my scape). Just want to contribute. I guess mine is also minimal? :)

Really really really love the scape! But I dont think it's quite minimal. If you left just the two biggest rocks, I think it would definitely look minimalist but then you don't have as much room for coral! lol

Just started up the first of two tanks. This one will be FOWLR (420G) and the second will be a 200G drop off reef tank (mainly coral). Both will use the same Caribsea Life Rock and simplified aquascape. Sorry for poor lighting.

You bought the shapes right? not just the regular caribsea life rock. 40 lbs of it or 60?

I think mine qualifies. Nothing on the sandbed. Will probably do a different powerhead down the road to declutter the back wall as well - maybe either an mp10 or an icecap 1k if I can find one used.

Not much in terms of corals yet - this is a reboot.

I dig it. I think one of the things that makes a well-done minimalist scape so appealing is all of the clean, uncluttered sand space. I find myself drawn, more and more, to those scapes that have this feature. Nicely done.
Thanks!!

Yes mate the shapes. Allowed for much more open rock work. I think there is 60 - 70 pounds of it for those pieces. I am running bio bricks in the sump for extra filtration.
