Very pretty - nice work with the scape; I could only suggest burying some rubble in those sand mounds to help keep their shape over time (the rubble will poke out and reveal unseen textures over time, too). Looking forward to this one!

Thanks! Not a bad idea. I was also thinking about mounting some rock on the back side to give it more of a cliff feel. See my old tank above in comments for reference lol

I really like the cliff additions - always wanted to implement something like it myself. I was thinking of how to do it not-so-permanently; do you think high powered magnets embedded into the rubble would be able to hold the rock shelf?

I have seen some with magnets that actually work. I know a company that has a frag rock as well that has magnets but ill probably make my own.

Well, I think I'm going to have to try making a couple myself, too; I think movable shelves would be best for me. You could definitely make more use of that light if you end up doing a shelf again.

BRS sells magnetic rocks.  I have two large ones in my 75 Gallon on the back wall.

Updates! Tank is doing amazing! The mame skimmer is working wonders and does enough for tank size. I decided to only do 1 tomato clown. The clown adds enough movement for the tank. Using Saxby setting but ramped down.
