Who here has a really cool aquascape. I have a 120 coming in a couple weeks and would like to do something really cool. This will primarily be an SPS tank. I was thinking of either creating a branched looking scape using either smaller rocks cemented together or buying some branch rock to achieve that look. Anyone have any pointers or rockscape links. I know exactly what I want it to look like in my head, but not on paper, lol.

cementing smaller rocks and branches together is the way to go. you can create som crazy looking scapes

If you go the cemented small pieces route check out these products as an alternative to cement/putty. They are a cool plastic that is malleable above 110 degrees and solid at room temp. Best part is if you use them in an existing tank they don’t cause your skimmer to go crazy or effect sensitive livestock like putty does. And you can reheat the material and reuse.

This one my is about 4-5 month old and 3-4 month with sps. Maybe 5-6 arcopora more will be good. And cant wait to see it about 1-2 year next. Hope arcopora will go out looking good shape i want
And side tank just for birdnest and some cheap monti. Bonsai will be arcopora. Around body will be some red and green and yellow monti. And around bonsai i will try do BTA around it.

Those branches look great. This is what I did with mine mixing branch and shelves. It’s to tall and the upper shelves block light from some of the lower shelves. Next tank will be more like what you guys are doing. horizontal branches low sprawling and as suspended as possible.
