Do you plan on starting with zoas primarily when you have the tank cycled?

B it is !!! 

 

 So far after recieving the Stax,I was like okay this is nice I can work with this,then after finding out it breaks easily and breaks cleanly and into nice pieces,I was even happier with it. 10lbs ended up being a good amount of rock. All in all it could probably make a scape big enough for a IM20 or a tank around the same size. 

 

 Seeming that all the surfaces are flat it makes it incredibly easy to adhere to other rocks and make a super stable scape. 

 

 I think it would be really cool if they would make a nano/pico box with smaller pieces just to draw in the pico people like myself. This is not a complaint about the pico just a suggestion that would be pretty awesome.

I agree, that would be awesome and save a lot of trouble breaking them up.

 

The only thing I don't like about it is how it's completely flat on top, which makes it look artificial. But I guess if you glue on a few pieces of rubble that would take care of it.

Heck yeah it would be. I do kinda agree with you on that,but it makes everything so easy lol.

I think any flaws with rocks and scapes get hidden once the coral grows in. Looking forward to seeing this tank get wet.

Just aquarium silicone,but lots of it lol. Seeming everything is flat,its a good sturdy structure even before being glued down. 

 

 I' happy to say,the 3/4" fittings definitely helped,thank goodness. The only thing I gathered now,is I don't think the DC650 will cut it. 

 

 I really don't want to have to run a prop pump,but I may just get a SW2 since they are smaller than the 4's.
