My tank has been up for almost a year now and I am not happy with my initial aquascape. My corals are sitting in a small 10 gallon tank and have yet to be put in my tank because I have been contemplating moving stuff around and figured it be easier if the corals were not in the main tank.

I have 2 clowns, bi color blenny and rainfordi. The only one I see having trouble with is the blenny since he will dig himself into a hole not come out of the rock when moving things.

I need some help with designing my scape. I am not good at this at all. Right now I have 4 main rocks that are all attached. My goal is to reuse them as much as possible as to not start a mini cycle by adding new rock. I am not opposed to buying a few extra pieces of rock to build. I just want to keep as much of the original as possible. The rock work consists of (starting on the left) one archway with a bigger rock on top. Then another archway/bridge piece that goes to the right and sits on another rock.

I have a gsp and torch in a separate tank waiting to go in this tank when I re arrange the rock. I am trying to think of something where I can have a small rubble pile to house the gsp by itself

To be honest, I'm kinda diggin your current scape. Is it just me, or is your tank very narrow front to back? I think I would train the gsp to climb the back of the tank. If you could get it covered, it would look amazing.

Sorry. Was working a 12 hour shift. I will get pictures up tonight or tomorrow.
no apology necessary.
I saw a green light showing you were on for awhile after I asked, and got irritated you didn't reply. must be the high temps and no AC.

Was that necessary? I don't know if I'm misunderstanding something, but sometimes you can't respond instantly.

thanks for the hand slap. I looked for a "delete post" as soon as I sent it.

Well thanks everybody. I guess I kinda feel like I threw it together with out much thought. Made me feel like I could have done more.

Should I move the structure over to get a small rubble pile? How do you get gsp to climb the back wall?

Been working 12 for a month so I have been limited on tank detail. Pardon the messy tank.

for the width you have to work with I think you've done well. are you going to have an issue cleaning the front glass?
