    Thank you!!

    Unfortunately not long after the Dino was cleared up, the right side of my rock structure fell. :mad: So now I have a bit of a different scape as trying to do what I had in the past was nearly impossible.

    Hahaha. I tired but I originally used jb water weld and it fell during the time I was adding new acro. It was to risky to try and fix the scape without disturbing all the acro I already have. I instead added some extra rock and gave myself more places to add even more acros ;):D

    Few photos that shows the new scape as the original one collapsed. Part of me thinks it’s because the sand wasn’t hold the rock well since I decided to go bare bottom since the Dino outbreak. It was devastating however you just gotta move forward and make the best of it. I decided to add a little more rock as well.

    Scape actually looks quite natural, works with the BB. It's going to look fantastic as it grows in.

    Thank you!! I look forward to seeing everything grow in. I never liked the bare bottom look but somehow after the Dino, I fell in love with how my tank looks without sand. Not sure if I’ll go back :D

    Your tank looks great. I'll be following along, for some reason I wasn't following your thread. Sounds like we've been through some of the same trials and tribulations. Glad to see you're on the other side of it now.

    Thank you!!!!

    Thanks for the compliment!! Yeah, it seems like we definitely have! I’m glad to be on the other side as well and I thank you for helping out when I had some of my own questions!

    I hope things are going well for you at this point too!

    Decided to bring out another lens. No return/wavemakers were turned off. Fairly happy with the results but I’m far from a good photographer. Just do it for fun!

    Canon EF-S 15-85mn f/3.5-5.6 is

    I love seeing foxfaces with their fins displayed like that. My magnificent will sort of pulse his. Such a neat sight to see. Great photos!

    Did the reefbrites happen to add the pop in color you were looking for?

    Yeah it was total accident that I snapped the photo hence why that wasn’t as clear as some of the other photos.

    The foxface really is a neat fish. The only thing is mine is a Monti cap eater :eek::eek::eek:

    I generally don't like the look of bare bottom, but how your rock is spread out, it looks nice! How do you feel the wrasse do without the sand?
