    Or aquascaping, whichever it's called. I apologize in advance if this has already been addressed. I swear, I actually look through the posts to see if my questions have been addressed already. So, I know I need a couple of larger size rock, then medium i'm assuming. But then how to I stack...

    Hi I'm looking for some advice. I moved house and tank 3 months ago, from a 200litre to a 300litre. The tank was 18 months old at the time. In order to minimise the stress to the animals, I quickly put the live rock in the tank at the time, in no particular order. As soon as it was in I was...

    Well I've finally got things settled, and here is an update. I re-did my copepod culture with Tisbe Copepods, I removed the sandbed completely so only the copepod condos are in there and I added a airstone for arreation. And I got a 200ml bottle of phytoplankton for their food, I'm feeding 2...

    Should I switch off my skimmer during Aquascaping using epoxy putty? Will it break my skimmer if I decided to leave it on when Aquascaping?

    I started with a minimalist approach. As my desire for more coral increased, I decided to add more live rook in order to accommodate more coral. In an attempt to utilize as much real estate on the rock as possible, I began placing corals. Little did I realize how taxing that would be. I...

    So a friend and I are filling out a 265 gallon display with coral for work. We want our (well, work's) money to go as far as possible and bring in a lot of variety and color, so we're doing mostly frags. It will look silly at first, but I think people will enjoy seeing it grow in over time...

    It would be so easy to spend hours upon hours just looking at all the tank pictures on this site and even around the web. From rock design, coral placement and even fish selection, all our tanks differ in so many ways just because of the person who sticks their hand in the water My wife and I...

    Hi everyone, I don't know if this is the correct place to ask this. I am planning on re-arranging my tank. However, I would like to hear your opinion. My idea is the create two piles of rocks, one on each end of the tank. That will allow me to have different levels for my corals and my anemones...

    I am trying to figure out how to get from where I am to a finished tank. Where I am - moving my tank to a new house. I have the tank up and the plumbing almost done. I have had the live rock from the old setup in two rubbermaid trash cans with heater and powerhead for about 2 weeks now. Where...

    Do you set up your rocks in the middle of the tank or in the back of the tank. Does your rocks touch the back glass or not?

    :idea: As I was searching for a place to purchase acrylic rods to use to aquascape my new tank I decided to change it up a little and reword my google search phrase. I used "where to buy rod to aquascape a saltwater tank" or "what rod to I use to aquascape a saltwater tank" and found the...

    I am in the market for about 100lbs of rock for a new system I am in the process of setting up. Obviously buying live rock at 10$ a kilo would be expensive and I already have some that I know to be good to seed from. Was wondering as I have never tried this before, what kind of rock is good to...

    Hello fellow reefers, So I have a 40 gallon which is a nano reef and I just cannot get a good set up that I like. I know there is an aquascaping thread that is pinned but I wanted one that was just for nano reefs. I would really like it if you guys could post your pictures of your reef sets up...
