I like that lagoon type look, leaves an area for a nice sand bed centerpiece coral. A nice elegance, plate, or one of the meat corals would go great there imo

I'm going to have to hang the light to get it up higher. The picture makes it look like there are dark areas and there are a couple shaded spots but not as bad as in the picture. I'm hoping after I hang the light from the ceiling it will look better.

Just to let you know, those glass tops can really cut the light down that's getting into the tank unless you keep it very clean. You will find yourself cleaning salt creep off it often probably. Also, from what I have read, they can reduce gas exchange and oxygen in the water which is not a good thing. This is why I got rid of my glass tops in my old 35 hex front. Im sure with a sump you will still get plenty of oxygen and gas exchange and if you don't mind cleaning it all the time you can pull it off fine. Just FYI is all.

Thanks for the info Paul. So your tank is open on top.
