I can’t decide! Which one would be better for coral placement? (Mostly softies and LPS with a few SPS)
Aside from that which one do y’all think looks better?
Thanks for the input
I like the first one.
I'm torn because both are beautiful. I might choose #2 if mine, but then I change mine frequently. lol
I really like your choices and appreciate you sharing the awesome pics.
Scape 1. Scape 2 may be a dead zone for flow and build detritus. Besides scape 1 looks better imo
I like #1 it gives more places to put frags
I like both. Personall, I would pick the 1st one because I am into SPS more now but for your plan, I think the 2nd one is better.
Yea I agree about there being more room for coral placement in 1st scape, but I really like the look of the mountains leaning into each other in scape 2, I can probably exaggerate that look a bit more when I get to actually gluing it together with polymorph plastic. I’m thinking maybe I can combine them sort of? Like this.
The hybrid looks best I think, but you would have to get the flow just right.
This won’t help much, but I like both the first one and the hybrid one! Lol
They both look great but your the one who’s got to look at it
I think if you want lots of active swimmers 2 but as blackice said it may be difficult to get flow through
Now that I saw the hybrid I’d go with that if you can figure out how to get flow through
To see the tank its going might help too
I really wanted some pulsing Xenia, my plan was to put them on an island in the dead spot in the middle to try to get them pulsing, you think there’s any merit to that plan?
I have an icecap gyre 3k in the mail and I’m using a jabeo 10000 return pump. I have 3” nozzles on both the returns and I have a check valve so if I have to move them off the surface a bit I might be able to pull it off
Hybrid would work if you do a dyi return pipe.
I like the hybrid one. It’s nice that it draws your eyes away from the center of the tank and has two peaks/mountains to focus on. If you are worried about dead spots between the mountains you can always get a small jabeo pump and add it to the back glass blowing through the center of the high area. I believe that would take care of dead spots.
I like them both but I would like to know what lights you are using. Knowing the lights can tell what sort of shading and how coral placement will go. Ive planed a few variations only to find out that my plan didn't work with my lights/corals.
