Coral Placement Question....

I designed this rock all wrong. Can't figure out what corals would look good on here or how to place them. Was thinking bout Acropora but here they are hard as hell to keep. Maybe some birdsnest. I should not have built that over hang cause it blocks light from reaching the bottom part of the rock.

I think it could be ok. Just have to be creative. Are the rocks currently glued at all (apoxy, beam, etc)?

I think you could do well with montipora, ricordia, mushrooms, even maybe sacrophyton. You may have to mount them a little differently though. I have found mounting a coral to a small fragment of rock in side a tall shot glass or glass. After it adheres then place that fragment to a larger rock. Worked for me at least
