Since you have more rock coming I would not worry about aquascaping until it arrives. You will probably get some larger pieces you will want on the bottom etc. and just end up tearing it apart again.

My hap'worth: Rockscaping is quite hard, and even harder in seawater. The rocks you have are artificial which makes things even more difficult. Suggestion:
- Buy a lot of live rock. It'll survive a few hours out-of-water
- Empty your tank
- Experiment with how the pieces could jig together, outside the tank
- Spread a towel on the floor and on it, build a jigsaw of interesting pieces, figuring how they would fit together in the "big picture"
- Transfer your assemblies into the tank, each building on it's predeccesor
- Re-fill the tank

I like it better that way. Once you add some more rock to that to give it some more depth it will look great.

I love having "caves". Something I did, that you might want to consider is building a "central cave" out of base rock that is siliconed together. Then you have a stable foundation to stack off of. Also, another thing that looks pretty good is having caves that are only obvious from different angles, not all from dead on front and center. Doing that provides more depth also...
