Ok... Need some help and some suggestions with scaping! This is my 55. How should I set my 75 up? Similar, different? My few ideas are:

1) to do almost a pyramid shaped pile in the middle towards the back glass to give plenty of swimming room and floor space for the bottom dwellers.

2) to do 2 piles of rocks so it almost looks like 2 mountains in there, I had that originally in my 55 but think it would look much better in a 75

3) to keep the "wall" look and do something similar just closer to the back wall and stack it a bit higher and leave it not so wide...

Any input??

I like the wall look myself. Gives me alot of places to put corals at different levels in the tank. You can check out my 75 build in my signature. I have a video update of it at Video updates of my 29 and 75 gallon reefs

Yes, I have rocks leaning on the back glass. I dont clean the back glass, so it doesn't matter. I like the look of the coraline growing on the back. I just clean the front and sides.

Nice that's what I do, I just hear a lot of people say having the rocks touching the back glass limits a lot of flow back there, but I've seen so many successful tanks that have it touching... Have you had any issues... Dead spots, nitrates, etc??

I have no troubles with this tank at all. I do have a powerhead blowing through back there. It is mounted on the side of the tank toward the back and blows across the back glass.
