Thanks guys, I appreciate these pics greatly. A "Just rock" aquascaping thread was a great idea and here are some pleasing designs. Am I allowed to post pics with just rock and no tank lol?

This is awesome. I just upgraded to a 180 and everything is just spread out right now. This will give me some ideas on what to do as far as aquascaping.

Alot of great arrangements here. Discustopia I love what you have done. I'm upgrading to a 180g in a few months I love to scale that arrangement down for a 180g.

I'm about a month away from seting up my rock, I have about 250 lbs of dry marco rock and my plan was to seed it with a box of live rock and let the whole tank cure together. These are some very nice displays!

some very good ideas on here.. I have a deep tank, 3ft front to back and I wanted lots of room for my fish to swim so this is what I came up with.
I was able to do this because this tank recently crashed (my fault, do not want to go into it)


so after the rebuild this is what i am starting with

A bit different from my previous scaping
