I'm a real stickler for cohesive/structural looking live rock...having spent 3 years arranging mine and still not satisfied. So, my advice would be to move things closer together, getting a bit of negative space going, follow the "rule of thirds" and just experiment. If you've got a beer, and you're into that sort of thing, inebriation has been shown to increase creativity in studies. Just don't go overboard...to creative and you'll think the live rock will look better outside of the tank.

I think it looks good. No need to re-arrange IMO. I don't think the "rule of thirds" is much of a rule at all. I find it to be a waste of time. You can do way cooler things without it.

Rule of thirds - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

But to each his own. I'd have definitely saved myself a bit of a headache if I could just be satisfied, but for me there's always a rock that can be moved just a little, or the flow could just be a little better in that corner. Then it all has to come down! I should pick a different hobby. Or maybe just glue my rock together.

I know that the rule of thirds is, but I never listen to it. Just another restriction to creativity IMO.

What lighting do you have? Some montis and birdsnests could fill up the top left nicely. Or maybe a garden of some type (z's/p's, acans, rics, for example) can add amazing color and all very easy to care for.
