Looks fine to me . Maybe moving the branching piece to form a bridge between the islands.

id personally break the biggest piece into smaller pieces so you could develop more scaping in the tank

How do I break it? It was my one piece of live rock so I don't want to screw anything up, ya know?

agree with the suggestion of more smaller rocks. if nothing can be done to "break" your bigger pieces of LR, could you try to trade it back to your lfs in order to have some smaller ones? your aqua-scape does look very bulky and not a lot of hiding spots for your future critters

Hammer and screwdriver. I broke many of my pieces this way. Just hit it in the middle of the rock and see what you get!

+1. if you are worried about making a mess, just wrap the rock in a towel first then hit it.

Here is the new aquascape. I broke the large rock into four pieces and created some caves and places to swim through and around. It's still a little cloudy but settling nicely. I worry a little about stability but I don't want to epoxy the rock together in case I want to change it so I don't know if there is anything else to do.
