    opinions on the aquascaping I did have to lean a couple rocks on the back because there is a ton of rock and was running out of ideas what do you think. I picked it up for 50 cents/lb so I got a lot! The same guy is selling me a pretty coool looking frog spawn and a mushroom rock for $50 I am very excited! to say the least its a little merky, but I will try to post some more pics after the coral is added and it clears up.

    I think your rockwork looks great! Make sure everything is stable and solid -- you don't want any rockslides.

    Yeah I tried to be pretty careful about the sliding that is close to a total of 300# of rock and would definately cause some damage. Thank you biff

    here is an idea of what it looked like before except I got rid of the lunare wrasse, the eel is ok, but has scars on his tail from a puffer fish that bit him, the filtration is completely different, and the lighting is a lot better now

    He actually picked on my zebra eel and nipped at his tail as for dims 48x24x31 The Lunare was an alright fish it was super hyper and would swim non stop all day, but was super aggressive towards other fish sometimes as well for food especially.
