The ones from Fishneedit.com look nice, their hard to get on though. They also have hanging kits which I am thinking about buying.

No, they are brand specific. What brand of fixture do you have?

The rock looks great! I started with the arch look and ended up switching it to more like a "U" shape because under the arch becomes dead space for any corals or other photosynthetic critters and the fish never really used it like I'd hoped. The "U" shape also gave me more visible and usable sand bed, and gave me more surface area to place corals at different depths according to lighting needs. Here's a pic to give you an idea of what I'm talking about.

For this size setup the more usable space the better because atleast in my case it's filling up fast! Good luck tho! It's exciting to see everything coming together!

I like the first idea! The second may look like less rock when its in the tank but they both look nice.
