This is the final scape what do u think also sad new my yellow coarse wrasse might have been a casualty in the rock scaping think he dove under the sand to hide and i moved a rock on top of him i think : ( but they do hide so ill give him another day.

 

So what do you think of the scape?

Looks good, I'd take that little rock in the middle and move it to the right and open up that middle space though.

Are the islands secured with fiberglass rods or anything like that? Scapes that high make me a little nervous with no support. The island on the left looks awesome, very dynamic with ledges and caves. The one on the right is a little boring IMHO ;)

Ya same here and in the middle do you think both pieces should be moved to the right ? or just the tall piece?
