I also create lots of arches etc. in my rockwork. Also toadstools will often remain closed for a few days at a time every few weeks to shed the outer "tunic" it will peel off over a couple days and polyps will extend again.

I rearranged things and I like it better now, moved the toadstool back to where he was and it looks happier already:)
I will get a pic up later:)

If you bury the "stilts" down a bit it's a little bit more stable overall. I'm glad I did that because I just picked up an adult engineer goby and it's basically tunneled under ever rock!

I am very sorry for the loss you experienced in this move, but it had several good consequences.

Not only did you learn from the experience, but countless other hobbyists have too.Smile

Another hobbyist has just posted the same question that we addressed here. I want to thank all of you because this discussion gave me the opportunity to formulate an answer that was brief and concise. Well it was as brief as I could come up with.Embarrassed It's referenced in a new link in the Tips and How To's section of my big thread below. Thanks to everyone. Hug

I'd still try to clear the LS a little more so water flow can go underneath the aquascaping.
On the right, the Turbinaria ought to have it's edge off the sand. That's bothering it's flesh against the edge. The flesh of Turbinaria ordinarily wraps clear down around the stalk so placing it on a couple rocks and having it face up a little more than it is, will benefit it.
Also too much clutter down in front of the left side rockwork. Sorry. I don't mean to offend. Just calling it as I see it, for your long term benefit.

Jackie, I think your tank looks wonderful!! I would let it mature a little before you start doing things that might cause another cycle. Just my .02 ( did you lose one of the leathers?)

I moved the Turbinaria so it was sitting up I was trying to figure out how to get him up but hadn't had the chance to do it.
I am guessing you think I just have all my rock stacked and there isn't any flow under but that's not true actually my overflows don't go all the way down the the bottom they only go a bit further than halfway and it is all open space open sand back behind them. Also there are only a few rocks that are completely on the sand, most of my rockwork is leaning on others so i think it should be fine. As for the front left I like it that way it has most of my mushrooms and palys to that side and I like it. I was at Jared's (jbutler) the other day and his tank he has downstairs going through the wall was amazing and I could barely see any sand.

You are fine with what you have open! You saw my tank and I have less open sand then you do.

looks very good thanks for your trial I probably had a better move from reading this I lost one clown that went over the overflow and got caught in the plumbing it was a Rods Onyx so I am not happy but I feel that I had a very successful move and have now changed things so that hopefully I dont loose more fish in the plumbing
