In my opinion it looks pretty good now and if you got large flat pieces it might make it look un-natural. But maybe few smaller flat pieces for you to place corals sounds like a fine idea. Just gotta make sure they are secure. I have some flat ones in my 20g for corals to sit on as well.

I think the right side of the tank looks perfect but maybe you can add to the center and the left side? Just a thought...

Yea I think I can fill it out forward and up towards the surface for corals that have higher light requirements

Exactly! Thats what I have setup, like several tiers of rocks for corals to have their light requirements met without a lot of trouble.

Sounds good! Post some pictures if you get some rock.

Lemme see what I can get, I have some lights off already though. Brb

In the pictures I tried to show how I have corals staggered on different levels. All based on their needs as far as light and flow. The ones form the 125g show alot of empty rocks, but each rock is a future home allocated already for a coral.

These are not the best shots of my tank. I feel silly putting them up but I hope you get the point.






Like the mushrooms are on the bottom and have a slight overhang over them since they don't need alot of light. My candycanes are mid tank and my SPS are higher up, like the birdsnest.


I hope the pictures help a little at least. You kinda want a a spot for eveyrthing. And spacing between them. Thast why I generally assign a coral for a whole rock.
