Almost impossible it seems to get an awesome scape in a nano. This is mine, redid the scape in Sept 2010 to facilitate the acropora and their need for intense lighting.

Wow, they are all realy beautiful tanks. Saltsolutions, I have been following your thread for a while now, sounds like a pretty sweet little thank!

Nvdiz, that's some amazing rock work, i love that little overhang on the left, how did you do that.. did you glue all the rocks together?

DadOfNine, i love the idea of two little island connected by a bridge, do you let the rocks touch the back of the glass?

thanks guys!

serdiss, i used epoxy and super glue to stick the rocks together. i also drilled a few rocks and used fiber glass rods to support a few pieces.

threads like this are what inspired me to put a lot of time into the aquascape since i would only have one chance to get it right, so keep it going.

Y-Diver's New Aquascape

Here is my new Aquascape set up for my 29G BioCube. Set Up with SPS in mind. I have an order arriving this Friday from ProCorals. Sorry for poor pic... taken with iPhone.



Thanks,

Serdis - The tank is an all in one so the back wall is actually not glass, but only one rock touches it is one small place.

Y-Diver - really love all the open spaces in your tank!

What a great looking group of tanks!

Dan

Not sure about awesome, but I think it has potential if I place my corals right.
