Canopy Pics/Q's/Aquascaping Advice

Here are the frags Im getting:
Sinularia Leather
Anthelia
Maroon Mushroom
Tri Color Zoos

Now the Aquascaping Advice I need, is where should I place these in my tank so it looks nice?

As for the question, is that pre-plastic-filter-thing on the powerhead fine? Thats safe for most everything?

Anyway... onto the pics...

Looks good. I don't know what type of lights you have but I would place them in the mid and lower parts of the tank.

Thats just 2wtg. Try mid to upper areas of the tank.

Placement is what looks nice to you. All I could suggest to you would be to take a look at the sw members galleries to get ideas.

I don't think you figure actual water in the tank. I think you figure it based on the total volume your tank would hold if empty. The W x L x D doesn't change no matter what you put in the tank. I could be wrong but I don't think I am. When I figure my 90g I have only about 60 or 70 gallons of water but still have a 4ft tank to cover with 580watts being 6.4 wpg and the 20g only has about 15 gallons but has 130w to make 6.5 wpg. Plus your tank is an odd shape and tall so it is harder for the 64 watts to make the bottom of the tank. You should definitely put them in the mid to upper regions. The tank however is looking very nice .

Also depth has a lot more to do with it than total gallons.
