As other said your tank looking good man. Hows the yellow tang? I see some danamge but I can't remember if you go him like that or if that happen in your tank

Thanks James, the Yellow tang in my tank I got it recently, maybe like a month ago and actually it was worse when I got it, his top fin is damaged but is getting better....him and the purple tang play tough from time to time but no mayor issues yet.

Yes, that’s why I have about a 1/2 inch layer of sand. I end op with bare bottom in some places, but it’s constantly shifting.

I’ve seen a few interesting bare bottom tank options on r2r recently. One guy used travertine tiles. They’re Reef safe, I use them for frags and colonies in my tank all the time. Another one was black starboard. It was really neat looking.

What if you poured a layer of epoxy. Then sifted sand on top. When dry. Vacuum out the loose sand and you would have the look of sand without the sand problems

King Kong on RC did that. He didn't pour it inside on the tank bottom but onto two cutting boards then placed it inside the tank. The only problem is just like everything in the tank, it will collect coraline
 
I’ll be using a piece of Polycarbonate and still not sure but I may paint the tank bottom glass black.

I've seen folks use travertine tiles to layer the bottom of tanks. You will just need to cut and silicone in place
 
May start a new Tale of a Tank due to the many equipment upgrades but tank has been cycling for a month already.

Is it just bare bottom or something lying underneath?
