I'd suggest maybe putting both the rocks on the ends down flat, and then putting the middle rock leaning up against one of them, and then the little rock on top of that.

I got the rock from gulfliverock.com. I didn't order from the site though. I found one of they're eBay auctions for 35 pounds shipped. Think it was around 160.00. Everything in starting to die off though. All the clams have passed an most plant life is turning brown. I haven't seen a live bristle worm since the night I put it all in the tank.

The ammonia is probably killing them off if I were to guess.

Should I remove the dead stuff or let it decay? Ammonia is around 3ppm atm.

I did similar with some of my live rock and regret not scrubbing the stuff off completely. I'd make all the dying algae and everything vanish with a good scrub.

After I get it cycled I will probably try and scrub it good. My clams started moving again so at least they aren't dead. I'm going to try a red light later and see if I can catch anything else moving around.

I bought a Marineland 1200 maxi-jet for 20 bucks at petco. I figured it would work until I got my powerheads in the mail. It's so loud though. I don't think I can stand it much longer.

Did a water test last night. Things seem to be moving along nicely. Ammonia was around 7ppm nitrite was 5ppm and nitrates where around 10ppm. The power head has ran all night and the water is clearing up a lot.

Has the maxijet quieted down any? Might need to take it apart and put it back together.

It has but, I changed to the impeller. When I put the cage and propeller on is when I'm having issues. I'm going to try the super glue and propeller shaving mods later... This is how is running now.

Are you still going to run it when your other wavemakers come? If not, I wouldn't worry about modding it.
