This is just my opinion. Tank looks great though and it's all about what you like not what everyone else like. Make the tank unique and yours.

I just offer my options and my opinion as I'm very anal with aqua scaping.

I mean no dis respect


EDIT: agree with above poster. Your gonna want more flow.
Thanks alot for your opinion!! Ill move the rock on the far right and stack the live rock there. I didn't think about the corals that like to be near the light so Ill stack it like you said. I have 2 power heads but didnt add them since I was letting the filter polishing pads clear the slight cloud color the sand left.

Wow some big opinions on this one! I like it I understand the look you are going for it conincides with the back round. The only thing I would worry about is if you get a goby or other such digging critters you have to make sure the rock is sturdy and on the bottom or the tops of you caves could fall down. I do see how you could build up on the scape with corals on top of the rock work. After all most of the time corals do come with rocks attached. Tee hee!

Hey Crystal! I thought about that so the cave tops are epoxied to prevent them from falling

Good thinking. Do what suits your needs and what you want to do with the tank. I put alot of rock in mine and didn't think that most corals come with rock attached. Kinda hinders a little bit on what I can add. Now mind ya I've only got a 28 gallon nano tank. Lol still like how it looks. Just saying....

I was thinking about starting a nano reef for my grandma. Are they hard to keep?

I agree with the rest. More live rock and black or
Blue background. Most people run 1.5-2lbs of LR per gallon. I have a 46 bow and I have about 70-75 pounds in my tank. Made some caves and holes. Looks pretty sweet that way. Good start though!
