So I actually did not make this but I actually bought it at the last show (KOR - Keep on Reefing) in Groton CT for a pretty penny. It's very stable and sturdy and the bottom is flat which works way better with my bottom less tank.

So the rock falls as I was placing it down and almost gave me a heart attack. These Bare bottom tanks really really do have a disadvantage when it comes to things like this.

It happens to me many times before but I have starboard covered the whole bottom of my tank and still got nervous when I hear the loud bang from falling rocks.
Good luck buddy!

Uffffff!!!!!
Glad nothing bad happened, I got new rocks and I’ve been thinking about redoing my rockscape and go bare bottom but that is one of the things that is giving me headaches thinking what about if a rock falls and brakes the bottom glass.
I’m don’t know of a really good epoxy to attach the rocks together.

Funny you say that because we used that for my buddies tank Luis in Astoria a few weeks ago and there no way that I don’t use that when I move back to NY. BTW,
Surprise surprise but I’m going to be your Nieghbhor again Vincent ha. We are moving back to Astoria or UES so you get to watch my tank along with Vio’s when we travel ha.. I’ll watch your tank but you might be missing one fish when you get back. Here is the video laying down the ABC board in my buddies tank.
