    I like all the rock,Is that all base?If i could make a suggestion though,i would try and stack and manuveur the rock to make 2 big rock caves and maybe leave alittle openness in the middle,thats JMO.Our fish really like caves and such to just get away sometimes...lol...

    its hard to see but there are a lot of caves in there, while i was placing the rock a buddy of mine was on the sofa to get the perspective right as i was doing it. it took a si pack and four hours but im still gonna tweak it a bit. thx for the compliments, i kind of thought i had too much but ill make it work. i still have like six more buckets of rock to pick through. ill get more and better pics of the caves and setup later.

    thx all i really appreciate all the advice up until now, everyone's been a real help. im sure glad i found this site! i tried my best to set up the rock with caves and places for coral in the future, i guess all those trips to the lfs to study there displays.
