Nice..love the rock. Make sure you have a good 3-4" between glass on scape for maintenance. If you can't fit your algae scraper or fingers in between glass and rock, it's going to cause issues. As rule, make sure you're designing for living with this and not just looking at it.

Thanks I have kept that in mind. I will be making sure there is room when placed into the tank!
Thanks for your reply!

That's really well thought out. You left room for corals to grow, you used your space well. As you plant your corals... you can make the sides (right and left) more unique to further reduce the symmetry. You also left nice negative space and can put other little features in the foreground later to avoid boredom. And... who doesn't love a nice arch!!! Nice job!!!

And... putting your big corals on the left and your little frags on the right will create the illusion of depth. Clever.

Looks cool, as others suggested just make sure you can get around it to clean. I made that mistake with my small 36L fresh water tank. Looks great, but there's a bunch of places I can't clean properly.
Made sure to keep it off the edges for the SW tank.
There is a few inches all around! At least for now... One point sticks out....probably hate myself for that one lol. Thanks for your reply!
