Yes, things have changed. I still have two reef tanks and things changed A LOT from when I had my first salt water tank to when I got my first reef set up. Same with Fresh Water. CO2, lighting and substrate are major areas that have changed 100% in the past twenty years.
I will move both pieces of wood (it is actually three pieces) I liked the idea of a "window" to the grass in the back. I will also be planting glosso in between and in front of the drift wood. Thoughts?
