I haven't quite made my mind up on this aquascape, and I wanted to see if anyone had any advice/constructive criticism before the new tank gets wet. This is my first time using base rock instead of live rock, so I know it isn't perfect.

The design looks really cool. My only comment would be about your stocking plans. If you want a lot of corals, your available space may feel a little small as you stock it. If you plan for more high-light demanding coral (like SPS Acro), the right-hand side may be a little low in the tank unless you’re adjusting the lighting power differently on that side.

I really like a great design. Makes me want to upgrade!

Middle and left are perfect. I’d personally try to add more height to the right side for some uniformity. Also watch that Nero on the left, it looks like it’s going to blast whatever you put there.

I added a few more pieces to make it taller on the left for sps corals. I also raised the middle a bit more. I have some decent sized pieces of live rock with coral on them in my other tank, so they will be added as well. I left the right side lower for that reason to keep space available for thos pieces.
