Reef structure from pvc done

Well guys its done and its been 3 weeks since I decided to redo the tank reef structure. Of course it is still a work in progress but now I feel I have room to grow.
I am very happy because now instead of seeing a reef full of live rock, there is more real estate space for corals along the pvc.
Because of the width of the tank my structure was limited. Taking into account for furture growth this bought the structure to a limited height also.
Here are some pics, in a few months I will do a before and after.





This was the fun part trying to figure out where to attach the corals











In 3 weeks the pvc is already showing signs of coraline algae growth!

Well as time goes on I'll keep photos for records.
Thanks guys for all your advice and expertise!
Juan
