    It is only a 16 gallon tank so can not really do much but here is what I did. Please ignore the fact that I don't have many corals I just got into this hobby.

    Materials: I got the purple rocks in the middle from a tank I purchased (pretty sure that they are man made and dyed) no clue where they came from and the other rocks I got from Evan. He let me take more than I needed, but that gave me options when trying to fit them together into something I liked.

    I wanted to have a little bit of everything: exposed sand bed, caves, and go vertical as I can with the rock work while still leaving negative space for sps to grow into.


    Everything is held together by gravity and friction (not as impressive as the job gravity is doing for him)

    Here's mine. Was set up to be view from the side not the front... and tried to avoid the stereotypical "rock pile" look so common with cubes. Rock is all stacked on a pvc frame from the return, no glue or anchors all gravity. Really like the openness it leaves behind the rock as there is just enough rock to hide the pvc from view, and made stacking rock high in such a small footprint a lot easier. And the fish love all the caves and ledges it creates, many caves where you can see all the way through to the other side of the tank from all angles.

    Thanks Matt really like yours as well, great use of the flat rocks to make that honeycomb of caves and shelves. Wish I had the space for a tank that size, how many gallons is that?

    March contest!!! Show your scape!

    Well I just completed my scape today in my 200g DD. I used approximately 160lbs of Marco rock. I wanted a canyon type scape with open swim areas and plenty of places to put all of the corals. This will be a true mixed reef tank leaning towards SPS.

    My buddy and I did this in a few hours without using any mortar, rods, PVC, etc. Everything is stable without those things.

    Without further ado...
