    Have Got My 'Rock Base' ready to add LOTS of Corals (Mainly Softies)
    I need to sort out my lighting and remove the FAKE Corals.:;thx
    PS do you think I should Have a Blue or a Black Background?

    The white rock in the middle is just 'base rock' and will mature over time I hope!
    It will look allot better when it is encrusted with corals and inverts LOL!

    A few questions!

    Do you think I should Take some of the Lace (Fake) Live rock out?

    Do you Think I should have a blue or a black background?

    Do you think You should take the Fake Corals out and Grow Real Ones?

    I think it looks fine just the way it is. I love the look of the real corals, but not a fan of the work that goes along with them. I love fish only or FOWLR tanks.

    I like black background:)

    The rocks is up to you. It should turn into LR onver time

    I would remove the fake corals if you are going to add real ones.

    I would not bother with a backround. If your planing on a reef than you going to have have to scrape off the coraline algae off your glass. Or else it will cover the backround over time. Take the fake stuff out and leave the base rock in. If you have some live rock in already than it will get live over time.

    The coraline will grow everywhere and not just the background.

    I'm going to take the Fake Corals out but do You think the fake live rock (fiberglass) is OK or should I take that out as the fish seem to like it?

    The fake rock is at the far right and far left of the tank!!!
