We just recently moved up to centerville from Provo and are excited to have our tank up and running again. Up until last week our tank was just a pile of rocks but then we spent about 3 hours aquascaping on Thursday and are pretty pleased with the results. We decided to go with the double mountain look and followed the "golden ratio" as far as rock placement. As we continue to get back corals that our friends have been holding for us during the move, we will update with more fun pictures. Anyone ever interested in coming to visit in person and talk salt is always welcome to. Thanks for looking and please ask questions and comment!!

Before Aquascaping....


And after!!!

Nice Blue Jaw. May have to try one myself. I also love the minimalist rock. Looks great.

McClure and Jackie thanks for the compliments!

Dave, the blue jaw is awesome. I first saw one in Allen's (Teknik777) tank and fell in love. So much personality. And I'm actually really glad you said "minimalist" because that's what we were going for but I ended up using more rock in the end. Thanks!

Trev, thanks bro it really does feel bigger somehow we're liking it a lot.

Thanks Jeremy appreciate the compliment about the aquascape! Triggers are actually the reason I got into saltwater because I was fascinated by how they swim and look. Then I realized they weren't really good for reef tanks and lost hope until I learned that nigers and bluejaws were atleast reef safe "with caution."

Thanks Josh! I almost bought a Niger trigger a few times but for some reason decided against it. I'm glad I waited for this guy though he's my favorite right now.

Thanks Kurt, all those talks about using less rock really convinved me to do it. One thing I kept in mind was the idea of negative space that Scott Fellman spoke about at MWRF '11 and how in terms of rock, "less is more." Yiu know you're always welcome over just hit me up.

I saw heir tank in person and it looked HUGE!!! It really made me miss my 120g
Great job on the aquascape guys, it usually takes me a day to redo aquascape in my tanks, you should come help out with the cube, I bet we can finish it in 1 hr or less.
I will also try to talk Mandi into letting me get a trigger, she thinks they are weird looking fish lol.
