View Full Version : 480 Mixed reef with foam aquascape

About to start a 480 mixed reef project (120X30X30). Wanting to use pond foam to create the back wall and some "pillars" with dryrock and sand. Any negatives? Long term drawbacks? I've heard that the foam degrades of time, any truth? Once built I plan on seeding it with the 300+ pounds of live-rock from my 120 mixed reef. Please share your experiences and photos.

I have never done the foam rock wall but on a large tank I wouldn't risk it.

Imagine having a thriving reef after a few years and the foam starting to break and makes a mess. Just my two cents.
