    Here is what I got. Held up by PVC Return Pipe and zip ties (The Dragons Head). The rock is marco and tonga. Tank is a 18 gallon ADA60P.

    Mine Is nothing Special, built it to mimic reefs in the wild. It has a few trenches that i plan to have coral grow on the walls of the trench and cover it for small nano fish and shrimp to hide in. Its built toward the back wall so my larger pelagic fish can swim about and school. Also so i can have a blue jaw trigger eventually, in the wild they swim about in these reef trenches and dart out to open water to eat planktonic food. Which is the same with my open water/trench rock scape. Left side of my tank isn't how it's going to stay i plan on moving the rocks a little to make one more trench and mound. The left side right now is mainly smaller rocks for my jawfish and gobies to hide in. Im trying to make this as real as possible. The corals i have are all in a frag state still but they will grow and hopefully spread out, this is another reason why the rock is built up on the back wall as you can see with my Sm colony of Pocilipora, it will grow out into open water hopefully. I will have Montis and acros in the trench walls. I have the rocks elevated by lace rock that doesn't cover much sand so i have VERY few dead spots especially with my wave maker facing that way bringing an upwelling current. Like I said its nothing special but when i have my corals grown out it will look well.

    So when doing my scape I wanted lots of plating rock to put corals on to grow. IE I have an orange hammer that is nicely taking over one plate. I have an ultra acan taking over another plate. I have a gold torch on top of them all. You get the idea. This should also help to eliminate coral battles when they start growing out. Also loved arches for some reason so I built one. Simply starting doing the jigsaw puzzle of rocks one night seeing what pieces fit together the best and then held them together with super glue and then finally that reef safe puddy. I used that on most of my aquascape to hold it in place for good. I also did the island rock in the middle for the nem so he won't be cruising around stinging all my other corals. I also like an open sand bed on the bottom for clams, gobies and stars. Ultimately it came out better than I could have ever imagined.

    It's made of rock.

    It's stacked like domino's to form lots of overhangs and caves for fish and coral alike. I think only one piece is epoxed and the rest is stacked. Anywhere from 150-200lbs of Lincoln log waiting for gorilla to knock it over.

    Here is my scape. I used great stuff foam for the back wall with crush coral and sand glued to it. Then use rock to build a tree looking thing. Glued the rock together with quikrete cement. I used black sand. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    76 gallon 1/2 round tank. PITA to scape, get flow, light. Still trying to get sps to grow. I used 1/2" acrylic rod and luck to stack rock.
