i have a 90 that i am going to rescape again, but this time with bigger rocks... i want people possibly who have a 90 footprint tank to post their pics with big rocks as their rock work... i am trying to get a feel of how i want my tank to look... i bought 7 big rocks that weigh roughly 10-20 lbs... one rock is like maybe 6"x12"by 4-5"thick... people say less big rocks make the tanks look bigger than lots of small rocks... so that is what i am gonna try tonight i hope... please post some pics of your setup... i was looking through your tanks, but it is hard just to pin point what i am looking for... so hopefully this post will help me greatly...
thanks.

anybody is welcome to post their pics, i mainly want just big rock and no plant posts.

Click on my tanks to see my 20g long, 65g and 90g...

My 90g (Mbuna) is setup with 140lb's of lace rock, but it's piled for 'height' - this (IMO) helps the fish to feel more at ease, and more likely to venture forward in the tank, knowing that they have plenty of 'bolt-holes' to disappear into if "danger threatens"... I also like the way that the fish utilize the entire height of the wall to graze on algae...

My 65 (and 20) uses river rock piled - works well for the Oto's, and encourages them to swim in the upper columns of water, but it's already cost me 1 peacock and 1 Oto that got stuck in the rocks (the peacock got stuck upside down?!?)

I hope these layouts help to give you some ideas, and wish you the best of luck!
