    Here is what I came up with for my 29 gallon Nano. I know that it dark as scrap but the lights are shutting off. What do you guys think?

    IMG_0352.JPG I just found this thread and realized my scape sucks. I am going to look into changing it. Never thought of plastic rods and putty before. Thanks. Also, any suggestions would be great here is my tank...

    IMG_2036.JPG Just finished my setup a few weeks ago. The Totoka live rock stacks really easy and I'm pretty happy with how the aquascape turned out. It helps to start with some really big base pieces laid out on a piece of cardboard the same size as the tank's footprint so you can move it around until you get it how you like it. I will probably move some pieces around as I plan out coral placement but here it is for now-
