LR

He tanks I have been seeing here seem to stack the live n base rock starting at the center then branch out from there. I spread mine out and connect them making Caves and gaps. Does it matter?

Nope, as long as it's stable and won't fall down then go for it.

I start the bottom layer first then add as i go to build up.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

+1 for carey, try to put the bottom LR onto the tank bottom then add the sand afterwards especially if you add any sand sifters or burrowers
