FINALLY! Couple Photos of my Fish Only 75g Predator Tank

I finally snapped a few photos last night of the tank with the Fox and Wrasse getting ready for bed. They are not the highest quality but you guys can see the rock atleast. I finalized my rock decisions and dropped in 17 more lbs last night. Let me know what you guys think of it.

I really like the single huge rock on the left. I just hope it's secure and stable! Looking good so far.

This grouper would make a sweet addition!

fwiw, you might want to take that macro out of the main tank, or you can build a lil acrylic box to put it in and hang it on the tank, I only say that cuz once that starts to grow it'll intwine itself into the rockand become a mmassive pita to get out, it can and will grow al lover the place in your tank, unless you want that. Its lookin really good tho, how long have you had it up and running?

Well, that was actually Caulerpa for the Fox to eat on. It's only been up for 2 months. I'm about to drop an off the back flow and a custom wet/dry in the bottom cabinet. I'll throw the Macros in there once its finished. They are more for the Fox to chew on in the meantime but I already hate the way it floats over all my intakes.

Yep, there is about 4-5 live rocks on each side and it is sitting nice and flush down in the sand. I can barely shake it at all with an good nudge.

Ah yes very true, just makin sure youre aware of the nasty growth spirt of that stuff and how difficult it is to pick out of rocks. I went BB on my tank 2 months ago and I'm still pickin that stuff out of my rocks that happened to get into the display from my hob fuge.

I like as well. But coming from the Architect in me, always looking for input. It's to symetrical. Maybe put 2 together on one side and one lone one on the other. The ocean is a hoge poge.. Your reef should be as well. At least that is the look I want to achieve...

My opinion only. But I like your tank.

Todd
