YAY! for a 75 thread! :)

75g is my dream tank. Something about the dimensions are just perfect to me. :D

I like the look of your scape, leaves lots of room for coral growth and swimming room for the fish.

Thanks. I love the dimensions lovin the width of it. Theres a crap load of swimming room the whole back is open. I like that I can clean the glass back there. I would've liked more caves and such but it's ok for now. I do have extra rock in the garage if I ever want to change it up. I might turn my 12gl into a frag tank and move all those corals into it. Just a thought at the moment. Thanks for looking.

Right behind him is his burrow/cave he steals all the empty shells and whatever small corals that are on the sand. He also steals the snails. They try to escape but he just pulls them right back in. It's just too funny.
Thats all for now. Thanks for looking :0)

point is that before you post you should figure out what the ethos of the thread is. you tweens come in like a herd of horny goats humping every thread in sight, then get surprised when people try to beat you with bamboo canes.

Thanks It took a little time. All the rocks are sturdy!!! Now I need to fill them up!!!!! :D
I'm sadthough my little green nepthea tree is so pissed off. Kinda like a weeping willow LOL poor thing Going to move him to the sand bed tomorrow maybe too much light of flow so this spot will be good for both. I also put a peice of that bleaching frogspawn from the 30gl in there kinda coming back a little bit. The one in the 30gl not so much but I still have hope fingers still crossed.

Thanks
