Here is a couple pics of my 8 gal. Its 2 weeks old and doing great. Added my first frag on Sunday and its doing great. I got lucky and found a nice rock with caves and everything in it, only 2 peices of rock. My turbo and hermit love it. Enjoy and I will take any feedback please.

Just take a look through different build threads... Sometimes you have to do some work to find info on this site.
Also, google is you friend.

Hows That?

With a really small tank, I would use much smaller rocks. Maybe 1 jagged one to build off of.

How do you guys feel about rocks resting on the side glass? Is it really that big of a deal to not be able to clean the glass there?

I have no choice with 90 Lbs of rock stuffed in a 40 G there is only one way to go... UP... I most of my inside surface except for the viewing panel has rock on it... I have a long pipe cleaner that I use to get in the nooks and crannys and I use the magnet on the back. There are some spots I can reach but they are mostly out of view. The only concern I would have with a glass one is possible breakage. Oh and you will scratch the tank where the rock rests, but I found my tank lying on the side of the road and spent 2 weeks removing scratchs so I'm used to them.

Just threw some rocks in from my 220g to get it going. I need to get another 10-20lbs and then make a final aquascape. :)

I'm assuming you meant 20 g... 220 is a bit large for this forum... even I am pusing the limits.

I suppose if I read your current tanks I would have put that together :P <a href=showthread.php?s=&postid=14519728#post14519728 target=_blank>Originally posted</a> by forddna

Thanks for all the pics! I especially like the idea of one or two pieces of rock! This solves a few problems ie: touching side and back of acrylic, allows for good flow, no toppling the rock etc... It might prove difficult to find the right show quality piece. An other pics?

I dunno if this helps, but here's the smaller island in my 220g. This could just about fit into a smaller nano. Maybe it'll give you some ideas. :) To give you an idea, my tank is 30" so the scape is about 15" tall.

Here is mine. I had to try to fit the remainder of my 150 that I wanted to keep into a 29 biocube. Was a bit tight but I think it turned out nice.
