Doesn't look bad, man. I would take everything from the middle to the right, and stack it into the corner. That way you slope from left to right, and it will leave a small pile on the right. Just my .02 It does look better though.

Hey Emonemo420 do you have a clean up crew in there yet?

Drop some hermits and some mexican turbo snails in there and they'll clean those rocks up for you real quick.

Cool its lookin better... i saw in another thread someone recommended some Nassarius snails and they do a great job of keeping a sand bed bright white and clean.. you may also want to look into a cucumber for cleaning the sand they are pretty neat.

Your hermits are probally hiding on the back side of the rock doing there job, no worries when its clean back there they'll come out front and clean.

Another good way to keep algae from growing is making sure you have enough flow in the tank.. But since your going FOWLR thats not a super high priority.

Hey things at looking good. I agree, Mexican turbos will go a long way. What is your live stock list?(What were in the bags?)

It is exciting to see a new tank. So much potential. Save your pics so you can look back at them.

I just looked at my pumps and it appears as if I only have a mag 3, sorry.
