I will start today with a series of pictures of my tank build process and take a look at how it looks at present
This is a 500g designed purchased and installed by professionals. I just play with the rocks corals and live stock.
Tank dimensions are 130"X30"X31"

Filling the 500 gallons

Few pictures during the filling of the tank on Nov 17th and beginning of aquascaping

Live Rock combined large pieces of dry rock from FL. that were placed in the center section of the tank
If I were to do another tank I would do all or mostly all using dry roch. No hitchhikers to worry about

Meanwhile I had LR and dry rock curing in my old 150g sump in the basement
