Finally finished the rocks and filtration. Running an EX70 Whisper and a AC110 on the 55 Gallon. 7 Yellow Labs, 4 Yellow Tail Acei, and an Unknown Peacock I'm trying to identify.

Let me know what you think!

I think it looks very good. I like the background...it matches your rocks very well. Good job.

Well...I would just make sure they match your background because I assure you from the video it makes the tank appear very deep.

I agree with him/her. the rocks fit perfectly with your backgroung. If you go with river rocks, the backgroung wont fit anymore...But thats not a big deal, its easy to fix :roll:
70 gallons: cyno. Sp haras, labido sp perlmutt, pseudo saulosi
6 gallon
125 gallons : mixed malawi males

Yeah the more i look at it, you all are right, i am just going to keep the current rocks in there, just i might get a few more and make the work up towards the back to keep it flowing back to front.

Thanks for all the compliments, i had a dream for this tank and it came to fruition very well!

Also ws812, i figured he was, but didn't know for sure. Thanks for the confirmation!
