You have some good rocks there. I would try to build some caves and overhangs. If you use epoxy you can stabilize everything.

Don't use epoxy... They make aquarium stuff that comes in a stick!

booooooo.

Well, I like the rock work. I like how the project is coming together. Hard to beat that reef rock quality - the rock fits together so well... sorry you had to wait so long for it.
