Yeah looks pretty cool. Plenty of places for corals and lots of 'swim throughs' for fish. Nice work!

Looks very nice chap. I can't wait to see how your tank ends up looking in time. How do you go about not having it as live rock ? do you get it seeded somehow or run without live rock ?

It has to be cured first. That allows all of the dead matter inside the bones to dissolve and release all it's crap.  I then cycled the tank with a bit of live rock in it to seed the bones

I have indeed mate. This is how the tank is now. I'll be adding a load of corals this week.
I'll start a tank thread when I get chance;)
