All the live rock is in, the guy I got it from even gave me a goby, sea urchin, and some more
snails and hermits...

Looks good Ben! Got some nice little hide-away caves. Overall, how was the rock...not too much algae?

Nah not too much... There's a little hair algae on a couple of the rocks on top, I need to take the rocks out tomorrow and scrub them. They were
loaded with life (brittle stars, worms, etc) and I didn't have a clean brush to clean it off with, so it will have to wait til tomorrow. Didnt wanna leave it out of water overnight. I'm hoping I didn't just commit tank suicide 8-(

No, you should be fine. I just wouldn't wait too long to get it off of there, tomorrow...you'll be good.

Do you think the tank looks a bit overcrowded with rock? I don't want to completely kill my ability to put some fish in there space wise...?

Imo it looks a lil on the heavy side but I don't think you need to remove any just rescape and try stacking higher.. I like to keep an uneven look to the height across the tank with a valley or 2 to provide a lil less man made look

And keep in mind its good to leave about a 2 inch gap between the glass and rocks for floor flow and access with your mag float and such
