Too Much Rock?

Hi all,

Just finished my aquascaping in my BioCube 32g.
Took me a VERY long time, now need some opinions!
Wondering if I have too much rock going on? (30 lbs live)

Not too much. It does look pretty jammed together, but you can never have too much. Try to give it a look you would like. I suggest you look for biocubes picture and mimic an appealing rock scape.

I like it. Lots of room all around to clean. The view from the front gives it depth. Lots of room for corals.

I like it too! I've got quite a bit more too in my cube. Echo the thought -- keep the rock far away from the glass like that. I didn't and have sections of glass now that are a real PITA to clean because the rock is too close, and no moving the rock now.

If your not planning to add corals it will be ok, IMO once u buy a few corals u will probably run out of room fast just because of your rock work design.

Not too much, but like others said, you might run out of room for corals. I also think that it's a tad too filled in. I think if you removed a few of the small chunks in the center about 2/3 of the way up, it'd open the structure a little to give it more depth and pockets for fish and shrimp to shelter in/under.

Good luck.
