    So after removing half the rock to get my eel out today to bring to his new home, i redid my rock work. I aimed to make more swim through and open look to it compared to what it was before due to my eel needing concrete basically so he couldnt move them. I feel pretty happy with how it turned out but always open to second opinions. This is what i could do since moving all the rock disturbed all the hiding detritus and bad gunk that turned the tank impossible to see in. I also had to take into consideration the corals already attached to the rock work as i didnt want to disturb them. Let me know what you guys think and any suggestions! Thanks!

    Pretty interesting layout. I think the depth it creates is incredible.

    It can be a nightmare when they already have corals attached. Makes it a real challenge.

    Good job considering you were working in the fog.

    It looks great to me with lots of places for corals and fish to hide, very nice.

    Very nice :) the only thing I would do different ,,, that shelf piece on the left side,, try and get it a bit more vertical ,, the front side is tilted up ,, could make it hard to see corals mounted on it ,,, other than that ,,, awesome job ,,,

    Thank you. That shelf is like that just because its the main way im holding that left piece up and keeping it sturdy. The way the shelf is, if i were to flatten it out more it might not work right.

    Really like how you have it. I am in the process of doing a new build and have been looking at other landscape ideas myself and think I will take some inspiration from yours. Would love to see some pictures when you put the fish in.
