I think it looks great!
gives the tank a very nice central focus point.

I'd suggest keeping the rock far enuf from the sides so you can clean the side glass. I prefer the front and side glass clean. Also, if you ever thing you want a pistol shrimp, I'd be sure the rock is touching the glass bottom of the tank )below the sand line). Burrowing critters can make the rock fall if you don't do it that way.

As Ray mentioned I would move the sides in. You`ll be able to keep the side glass clean. I keep my LR on the back glass. Forces the fish to swim out front.
