Is there a thread somewhere where people post full tank shots of their aquascape when it was first built, and then shots of what it looks like now? For established, grown out tanks? This would be incredibly useful and fun for people like me to see who are in the early stages of planning a tank. Seeing it from multiple angles would be even better. The only way I can find to do this on the site now is by looking through build threads. Build threads are awesome, but they can go on for tens of pages, and it can be hard to find the shot of what the aquascape looked like, and even what the tank looks like now.

Please post yours, and please include the tank volume, and dimensions if you know them.

Thanks!

My pics are in some disk somewhere, here I only have videos so I took screenshots. The first one already with some corals but I think it can give an idea how was it and how it is now. This is an upgrade from my previous 150 gal tank.

Yeah definitely useful when planning your scape! Overhangs, few peaks, and a lot of tunnels is what I have right now, i can update once I have corals but will try to find old pics of my previous tanks before corals.

Previous Tank - will try to find a original but build high peaks is good otherwise things tend to run into each other like what happened below.

Beautiful example that shows once a scape if grown in you cant see the rocks.
