You can make just about anything work, especially coral skeletons. It's what the reefs are made of after all! I don't show them off, but I use coral I killed to support my aquascape or I toss it in my sump as more places for bacteria to grow.

maybe some of these will give you a idea
build your scape as you would every so often add a shelf its in the imagination








it takes time getting things right but it pays in the end
