Here are some updated pics. The tank is nine months old now. I don't know why the pics are so small! Sorry!

Here's my 375gal. It's 96" X 36" X 25". This is right after the rocks were put in the tank so the water's a little cloudy:



And this is after 6 months:

One of my favorite aquascapes of all time! Even without corals it's so interesting!

It amazes me how far the "art" of aquascaping has come in the SW world since I started... awesome stuff everyone!

I sold my LRT (not nice) due to a promotion (nice) that involves a ton more traveling (not nice), but I remained in the hobby with an ELOS Mini... here's it's lil aquascape:

Some of these are so nice, it would almost be painful to alter them with a bunch of corals!

That looks awesome. If I ever got the courage (more importantly the money) to setup a reef it would like something like that.
