As promised, the finished product. For now.....
I wanted a freshwater reef look. I may add a Java fern or two to give it some color. The rocks also add a ton of caves and hides within its nooks and crannies with holes big enough for fry to hide in, but larger fish can’t reach. They seem to love it! They’re all picking out caves and territories. The Msobo deep love the bottom caves, while the Cyno Zebroides Cobue seem to like to hang around above and on top of the rock.

Nice work! 8)
And, please post up some more pics of your tank, if you decide to add a couple Java Ferns in there, (I personally recommend adding a LOT of Anubias... :wink: ).
