You'll have to position powerheads in such a way as to ensure water movement throughout the tank. That probably means some positioned near the bottom, others at the top. Point them in opposite directions because you don't want a swirl movement.

Finding the right shape of LR is going to be the challenge. With smaller pieces of LR, you find you need to stack the LR up high. Inevitably, your stack structure will collapse down on itself and be a problem.

My hex is more tall than wide. LR.com sent me a giant lump of rock. One big, tall piece that sort of acts as the centrepiece of the tank and I've avoided stacking altogether.
