I'd do the first layout but make one structure off center and make them different sizes. Also don't put them to close to the sides or front so you can clean the glass.

Here's what I have on my 125 in work. I plan to make the structure on right a little bigger and build it to the right a little more but you get the idea.

I really like that!! It's pretty much the same as what I was thinking in my head. You'll have to post a photo once yours is complete. Thanks for sharing.

You're welcome I have a thread going. I'm aiming to have it up and running by march. I have about 30 lbs of live rock from my 20 gallon to seed the tank with. Look up the rule of thirds if you want to get a better idea on how to make an aquascape appeasing to the eye. It helps me out alot.

I would do a mix of both 1 and 2. That's actually how I have my live rock set up at the moment.

It's a 90. Same footprint as a 75 but a little taller.
