My Sumpless 40Br Mixed Reef Tank. Set up since August 2012 (Moved from SC), most corals have been with me for about a year prior to the move.
Tank: Aqueon 40BR
Stand and Canopy: The stand is a nice entrance piece of furniture and the "half-canopy" and fixture cover was made by me.
Controller: Apex Jr. (Without Display, I use my iPhone 5/Computers to monitor the tank)
So as some of you know I make "Rock Structures", or however you name them (I've been corrected any number of times!). This is something I like to do, and it keeps me deeper in the hobby without burning me out. I wish I could say I am some type of savant in designing Rock Structures, but this would not be true. It takes me quite a bit of time to create these things to the point I think they look pretty decent. What do I mean by this? Well, believe it or not, I try to make it look as natural

Here's a very surprising coral recently posted by Walt Smith Int'l Fiji. Too good to be true, right?
Here's the link to the video on Facebook (turn your speakers down): https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v...type=2&theater
And a bunch of images. It came out of the ocean like this; it's not some man-made merging of two colors. Neat find.
I spotted this on Facebook today. Image by Reefkoi. Look at the size of the polyps that opened up on this Chalice coral. I read that it's from Jason Fox's collection.
Marc suggested I post some of my tinkering of Rock Structures here.
This is Man-Made Rock, using rock studs and resin epoxy on certain joints (Using the rock studs) to make it super sturdy. A cat 5 hurricane may knock it over.
This structure has an arch and a semi-divided branch in the back (depending on how you look at it). I used Snapseed (Google's mobile picture editor) to edit the pics as it's very difficult to actually show what the rocks look like in real life.
