The tank being just over 1 meter long should be cool,

Whoop whoop,just got my floating rocks for my tank,all I gotta do now is clean them up before I add them into my tank ,
Got three of them,not sure if I will use all three or not yet as they are bigger than I thought ,they measure 6.5 inches high by 5.5 inches wide,about 3 inches thick,
Once they're clean and in the tank is gonna look the dogs bollox,this could be in the running for tank of the month, lol
Will give me something to do now I got them to take looking at a bare tank off my mind.

The Claw! The claw!

Looks good. What you planning on growing on them?

If you're looking to recoup some of the costs I'd take one end of the month  8D

I'm going to fit a large long tentacle anemone to one of them,the tentacles should look good hanging down and flowing around,seen a nice bright white one already for sale so with a bit of luck it will still be for sale when I'm ready,hopefully that will attract the clown fish to move in ,that will be suspended in the centre of the tank as the main feature.probably be suspended about 6-8 inches from the surface of the sand,
Once that is in it will give me a better idea of what to do with the other two,use both or one ,
Can't believe how crystal clear the water is in the tank,it's amazing ,I'm so chuffed to bits with the setup,,I reckon this is probably the best setup I've had so far,even better than my 6ft marine wall tank I used to have and I loved that tank,
Can't see me going to bed anytime soon tonight,think it's going to be a late tank night,  lol lol

Well if I do decide not to use all three and as you have asked first Ratvan ,I might sell you the other one ,nearly all of the ones I've seen online are a 1/3 of the size,so lucky to get the last set,

Looking good Dave,

I’m intrigued re the floating rocks? How are they secured to prevent movement in the flow of tank water...

They've got a piece of nylon wire attached to the underside which is attached to a large sucker then stuck to the glass underneath the sand bed.
They will sway a little bit but not much the higher up in the tank the more they will move but if you keep them lower should be ok ,

If you got a hurricane of water flow in the tank force 9 then probably not good ,I tried one last night in my tank and it was fine .

Got ya, sounds like a stupid question because you clearly know your stuff, will the corals/anemones settle on something with movement, appreciate currents/power heads cause movements/swaying around the coral but never normally the rock it’s placed on???

It’s a fantastic concept i YouTube’d floating rock marine some of the tanks are amazing - those all seem to be siliconed to the back wall or a glass platform

Considering they're floating rocks they do have a bit of weight to them so it's not like having a feather in the tank ,this is what helps them stay in position,
When I get a chance I'll video it so you can see what they're like under flow.
