Very nice. The area around it looks like a battlezone though :). There is a howto under the New To Hobby that explains how to get your imaged linked. Basically you use the IMG: tag that photobucket provides.

I really like the right side but I'm not sure if I like the left.

02/20/2006, 04:44 PM
what do you mean battle zone, its meant to be 2 dirrent themese on the left u cant see m by the picture is a step effect with loads of caves n holes the right is a s a strange forest of rocks!

Nice Job. I'm really feeling your aquascaping ability. What are you planning on putting in your tank?

02/20/2006, 05:22 PM
I like the "strange forest of rock." What kind of live rock is it?

Looks pretty cool.
But having the tank in front of a window isnt the best place if it gets alot of sunlight.

Whys that? The reefs in the ocean sure get plenty of sunlight ;) Theres quite a few people that use sunlight to lit their tanks, especially when you get to the larger ones.

I really like the right side. Not sure about the left side, but its not bad. Good work.

By battlezone..i think the person was talking about the room surroundings...pringles, etc...

The natural light can cause algae to go nuts.

02/20/2006, 07:03 PM
oh hehe well we where in the proces of making it so it will have loads of crap around it.

the right is mainly brazilian Live rock, strange shapes we think its fossolised coral, on the left its fiji rock, it looks better than the picture sujests but, i think i will change it.

yeah i didnt want it buy a window but had no chjoice ill have a background on it so to much light sahouldnt get in, shoudl also make it look better.

i plan on keeping softs polyps mushrooms and a few fish maybe 6 small fish

oh and we used cable ties to get the rocks liek that on the right

This was really a trick question! Rather than comment on the rocks, we should have all commented on the IO hydrometer! Throw it away and get yourself a refractometer... now. :-)

ill get some better pictures soon and show the progress, i forgot to take the picture of the sump, it has over 20 kilos of live rock ruble all golf ball size a DSb gonner add cheato soon.

funny thing this is my 2nd tank spents nearly £1000 and i havent even had a fish yet :):mixed:

Like squirmy suggests about the IO hydrometer I had one before the refractometer and they are cheap and innacurate. Nice job on the rock scaping but I would add alot more rock.

02/21/2006, 04:24 AM
well i have about another 25 kilos in the sump so thers tons of LR for filtration

I think the aquascaping looks good. Particularly nice rocks on the right. Where did you buy the live rock and has it got many hitchhikers?

02/21/2006, 04:53 AM
I like it. Although it does't give you much room for coral on the rocks. It gives plenty of room for for the fish. Shrooms will grow anywhere as well as zoos. What are your plans for lighting?

02/21/2006, 10:37 AM
lighitng plans are t5s luminar, just wating for it to be delivered the 2ft one will go in the sump.

02/21/2006, 10:38 AM
oh got the rock from my local fish shop aint noticed any hitch hikers yet though only been in tank for 3 days

Interesting shapes of rock and you seem to have done well with it. I like it.
