There's a few typical "layouts" that most people use. In my 75 reef I have built up both back corners and let it drop a little in the middle. Sort of a concave boat shape. Some people put one side higher than the other, or make sort of an archipelago shape with the ends curling towards the front of the tank. Some even make two spectate rockscapes and leave the middle sandy.

My tank is little so I just stacked my rock leaving a couple of caves at the bottom. I also tried to make my sand deeper in back than front, but my powerhead flow did a number on that idea.
Whatever you decide to do, make sure the rock is secure so sand shifters later don't upset it causing a catastrophe in your tank! Cant wait to see pics
