Thanks! I used aqua stick epoxy to hold it all together, many people online tend to give epoxy a bad review but I found this stuff great to work with! Though I did use quite a lot of it and at £13 a tube it wasn’t cheap either! This is going to be my first saltwater aquarium after keeping all kinds of freshwater fish for as long as I can remember.

I began my aquascape last night and I got wrapped up with my work and by the time I ran out of glue I looked at the time and it was 12:30am.

I wanted to finish this up this weekend so I am buying more and having it shipped overnight so I can have it Friday night. I will get a good night sleep tonight and pull another long Friday night.

I would say I am about 70% complete. I believe the left side is complete. I still have about 60lbs of rock on the floor. These are all the smaller pieces to create ridges and bridges. I will start on the right side and work to the middle when the glue arrives.

I had laid the rock work out on a a 8' x 24" stand about a month ago and once I started gluing things in the tank last night I started changing a few things around and create more interesting shapes. The basic pattern and location of the large rock didn't change much but I was able to create more pronounced shapes and caves now that I am gluing things together.

What do you guys think of the work so far. I will post the final pictures next week.

I think it looks good and personally wouldn't add any more!

I would remove the ones connecting the left rock. Push the center together. Watch some YouTubes on the rule of thirds. It needs more open space. I’m not a fan of the wall look. That’s just me, if you like the wall look then it looks great.

I am using (old and new) pukani dry rock and nylon thread rods with bolts and washers (all nylon)

The new set up will accommodate a pair of jawfish and have approx 6-7" of DSB. The red coffee can in the pics is about that tall just to give you an idea of what will disappear in the sand







how I envision to plant it with gorgos, sun corals, etc.:


This time around I was looking for a more 3-dimensional look. Here's a picture from the top. The brown paper it sits on is the same footprint as the tank will be:


I took the pictures before I cut off the nylon rod ends. Obviously it's much less noticeable without ends sticking out.
