Any suggestions on my aquascape?
Here’s my thoughts. Move left rock and rotate to make use of it’s nice shape (1). The 2 remaining rocks shift left together and add a new piece on top to gIve some height.

Thank you so much for taking the time. I love your idea but am concerned to move a couple rocks. I have a watchman who has made his home under the middle rock. I’m sure he will find a new spot but just wanted any suggestions about moving the rock around. Thanks again!

No problem. You could follow my idea closely enough without moving the centre rock. This will enable you to get another rock on top to get a variation in height

I have a 55 gallon with two live rock and fake coral ornament which will be going bye bye as soon as I figure what I can do with this tank. The placement of this tank is on a divider between the living & dining room so as to be seen from both sides of the tank. Got any ideas for this. I only have one real coral on the live rock a Zoanthid.

I’m no expert at reefing I’ve only just set up my first marine tank but it looks like you could do with more live rock and I would put it in like an arch shape if that makes sense so like two pieces then like a bridge between them maybe ?

That was what I was thinking but then I saw a video where this tank had a arch on each side and I thought that would be pretty cool considering the placement of my tank and how it can be viewed. Thanks for the input! Just need to go to the LFS and check out some of the live rock they have.

I could use some help. I’m just not good about this stuff. 30 gallon bow front, 24” tall, 24” wide, 12” front to back at the corners and 15” front to back at the center of the bow.

My goal is mixed reef.

I’ve got 3 pieces in the tank already, and a bunch more to use

I am building my first saltwater aquarium and it's 24x24x16. I have been staring at the aquascape for a couple of weeks now and have rearranged it a few times as well. I think I have a good setup now, but wouldn't mind a second opinion.

I am planning on mostly corals, starting with Softies, lps, and adding some sps once the tank is established and stable. I tried to create varying heights as well as a few "shaded" areas in order to create places of varying light intensities for the different needs of the corals.

hello, could you please help me with this scape. It will be a mixed reef eventually. Also the grey blobs are another rock I am thinking about adding.

Doing my first ever aquascape for my new WB 100.3 so any advice would be appreciated.

Current dimensions will leave about 3 inches on all sides of the rock structure and the highest point will be about 2/3 of the depth of the tank. Note the peninsula looking thing on the left is currently being supported by the rock on top, but once I glue/mortar it together I can slide it out a little more or find a rock that doesn't make that end look as rockwall-ish.

Thanks!
