Live rock and powerhead positioning

Hi guys, i'm new to saltwater and I just started this 36 gallon a couple days ago. I got 40 lbs. of liverock from a guy off CL, and 50 lbs live sand. I was wondering if my live rock was high enough? I have two Kessil a150w ocean blue lights and I want to be able to grow anything in that tank, looking to grow some hard corals down the road. Would I need to elevate my rockscape higher for me the coral to be closer to the lights? My lights are a bit above 6" from the water. Also I have two 850 koralia powerheads, I have one top left corner pointing to the front, and one sorta middle right corner pointing upwards. That good placement? Or should they both be pointing towards each other and on blowing on the rocks?

Any feedback would be awesome !

First image is a little cloudy, but it's what it looks like with lights on

rock placement is more of a personal thing its really what you like just look around on google or pinterest to see the different aquascapes and go with which one you like heres mine now been setup for about 15-16 months

The less rock in the sand the better because it will create dead spots. Plus live rock was once coral so I think if you can get the skinny side in the sand it looks more natural like it was once a growing coral instead of just a pile of rocks
